    Stations for Ham- and Natural-Radio:

  • For Natural Radio I use several Antennas:
    a) Square with 4 m² and 4x2 turns
    b) Square with 2 m² and 70 turns
    c) Ferrite Antenna with 1000 turns on a 30 cm long ferrite with a diameter of 2.5 cm
    d) Long wire 52 m long, 8 to 5 meters above ground
    e) Earth loop with 7 turns
    Receivers for Natural Radio:
    a) several amplifiers with OP's and Transistors or FET's
    b) several computers with Soundcards including a Laptop with an excellent soundcard
    c) several software
    d) receiver system from 9.1 kHz ... 245 kHz with Ferrite Antennas (mainly to receive 16 kHz from Great Britain)
