I hope to obtain or build a discone antenna that’s good for roughly ~50MHz-1.2-ish GHz over the next couple of Tuesdays.
It’s likely we’ll need to build filters to our bands of interest; the space is located near a lot strong signals Eg. mobile phone cells, WiFi, etc. which won’t help our already mediocre SNR in the cheap USB RTL-SDR dongles we’ll be using.
But in the first instance, I just want to throw up a discone antenna for VHF/UHF, possibly 50MHz, and see what it looks like on WebSDR.
I’ve posted to the CRARC list to see if anyone has an antenna they’d like to donate or allow me to buy cheaply; do let me know if you know of someone who might have something we can use.
