Re: Perseus / Winradio and LA400 Loop Antenna
since >9 months I have two antennas which are connected via a mechanic switch to a passive splitter for getting the signal of one of my loops to two radios at the same time. In fact there is a small loss cause of the splitter. Therefore I'm also considering to buy an active splitter.
My favorite is that one :http://www.hamradioshop.net/index.php?cat=KAT11&lang=ENG&product=00100 . It's the new "AntennaJet AAS300" which even can deliver the signal to 3 receivers.
It's no that cheap to convince me in a quick decision and so I'm also still looking around for alternatives.

Glad you never got past the idea stage...
those Nixie-tubes are getting really hard to replace, as common as hens teeth!
Oh, preparing in advance for a huge request, I got hold of several thousands of them... :-)
Then, after discarding the project, I sold them all... the cost of each digit, if I recall
correctly, was about 20 - 25 lines of code.... :-)
But, who knows... never say never.... maybe I could buy them back and recycle them
in another project.... not Perseus related, though.
