- Jul 1, 2012Thank you Werner for your input. I guess I’m not too far off the reservation, because the vertical also does a dandy job with signals.Mark Durenberger
On the RoadHello Mark,the noise floor of my Perseus at 6 kHz bandwidth is around -118dBm. If your antenna adds another 6 dB than you are making full use of your receiver sensitivity and the signal to noise ratio will be fully dependant on your antenna and the local noise situation. Most local noise is not broadband, so you can see it in the spectrum and measure it and look for a quite location. The rest, to my experience, is just antenna length or antenna area, height and diagram. For MW beverages or big loops should give best results.73,Werner2012/7/1 Mark D Mobile <Mark4@...>
Hello to all. I’ve been using my Perseus with various verticals; 30-foot
and 50-foot. I've been careful to find quiet locations.
Reviewing the recordings, I’m seeing MW noise floors (around 1750 kHz) that
average about –112 dbm at 6.04 kHz bandwidth.
C/N for even the weak stations is 20db or better.
I’m wondering if this is considered good noise performance? What's your
