5 easy mods

5 easy mods: No money required, willpower and some wire goes a long way.

SDRplay RSP1 and RSP2 receiving VLF LF and AM BC with Mini-Whip [00:06:10]

SDRplay RSP1 and RSP2 comparison receiving various signals on VLF, LF and AM Broadcast band in Macedonia.
In this video I am using Homemade Mini-Whip Active Antenna.
Pay attention to the difference in signal levels from my previous video when I have used 43 meters long Delta Loop antenna:

Antenna on RSP2 is connected to its Hi-Z port.

Here are some information about signals in this video:

60 kHz Time signal from NPL is a radio signal broadcast from the Anthorn Radio Station near Anthorn, UK.
The signal, also known as the MSF signal is broadcast at a highly accurate frequency of 60 kHz and can be received throughout the UK, and in much of northern and western Europe. (But I am receiving it in Macedonia) The signal’s carrier frequency is maintained at 60 kHz controlled by caesium atomic clocks at the radio station.

77.5 kHz Time signal is German DCF77 longwave time signal and standard-frequency radio station. The highly accurate 77.5 kHz carrier signal is generated from local atomic clocks that are linked with the German master clocks.

On 295 kHz there is NDB (Non directional Beacon) from Alexander The Great Airport near Skopje (about 80 km from my home)

On AM Broadcast Band (530 kHz - 1620 kHz) you can see how many AM stations are on the spectrum display (with 9 kHz raster) receiving here at my home with Mini-Whip antenna which is only 10 cm long!

More information you can find on my web-page: http://www.qsl.net/z33t

NOTE: The YouTube software algorithm find that the music playing at the last few seconds (on AM station) in this video is under copyright low, and that is why they put third party advertising messages in my video :-)
