This situation exists everywhere within terrestrial broadcast radio, hobby and commercial alike. Radio is old technology and the younger generation has largely passed it by in favor of more modern and I daresay efficient technologies. Radio will continue to exist for a time but some of the younger folks among us may see a day when radio is history.

SDRplay with HDSDR  View Printable Version

Welcome back, Chris! I'm still enamored by my Perseus SDRs. Unbeatable
for quality and (IMHO) ease of use, compared to other SDRs. I also have
the Elad FSM 2, but much prefer the Perseus....Walt

phased BoG experiment in Masset.  View Printable Version 
Monday, January 07 2019

Bill, my phased array was similarly about 1.3 to 1, but more like about 5'
apart. Results were occasionally very interesting, but in the end, I
didn't use it very much (too much happening during TP openings). One down
side was that the shorter BoG was not amplified compared to the longer one,
so I sensed this made a big difference in decreasing the efficacy. Perhaps
I'm wrong on that. I also don't necessarily have much to the rear of the
NW BoG once daylight breaks to my east. I suspect, perhaps that a phased N
Beverage might be more interesting, especially if it can help with splatter
from the rear! 73, Walt
