If you really want to boycott Rupert Murdoch then you can't buy/listen/read/watch ANY of these.

Paul, not only do I not care to boycott Rupert Murdoch (or anyone else) but I also fail to see how your vitriolic spam has anything to do with Mr. DeBock's impressive ferrite sleeve loop.

*Very* interesting, please is the FSL broadband?
Thank you

Bob, Paul contributes radio and non-radio news alike according to his preferences. It's okay.

Thanks again to hometown buddy Guy Atkins for making this FSL demonstration video. After building 5 FSL test models for LW and MW and testing them out at home and on ocean beaches, I'm astonished at the DXing performance of these compact antennas. I'm equally astonished that nodody has tried this idea for decades. A tiny 7" diameter MW FSL model has outperformed a full-size 4' sided air core loop in detailed testing here-- it's like something straight out of a science fiction movie.


Nice to hear about this type of antenna basically there are different types of antennas and can be used according to their purpose. Size of antennas also depends on using device that where you are using antenna. In radio system size of antenna is small in comparison of other device such as tv system.

Hi Gary--
I am very interested in your FSL antennas, I am an old (87yrs) NRC member who has gotten back to BCB and LF DX using a Drake R8B and a couple
of center-fed crossed Delta antennas hanging from a pulley 55 ft. up a tree---serviceable, but not very portable! I liked your article in the May 12 DX News.
Might you have an old FSL that you are not using and be willing to sell or perhaps loan?
