I have only just discovered this site and am most impressed. An news item in Practical Wireless had the URL so here I am.
My shack is really the corner of the lounge at my home in Dunedin, New Zealand which for those not familiar with our geography is in the south-east of the South Island of NZ.
Antennas are another interest of mine and at present the amateur station is connected to an 80M dipole and my SWL is done with a homebrew EWE antenna.
I also have a variety of loops (shielded, single wire and multi wire which are in a permanent experimental state) which mainly are used for NDB (Non Directional Beacon) listening.
