153antenna for Loran-C
- Aug 6, 2004Greeting folks.
I am currently attempting to build a Loran-C (centered at 100kHz)
receiver and am having some difficulty with the antenna. Though I
have been frequently informed it is difficult to not pick up this
signal, I seem to be quite accomplished at it. My only attempts to
pick up the signal consist of hooking the leads of various AM
antennas to the 50 ohm input of a spectrum analyzer via a matching
network for 100kHz. Any recommendations as to how I should
build/purchase an antenna for this frequency and how I should test
it? Also, does anyone happen to know what the polarization of the
Loran-C signal is?
