Location of H-field antenna
#1
I use 2 ferrites as the H-field antenna. My system blue is housed in a wooden garden shed. Does it matter where I mount the antenna? Or is the reception better outside?

Torsen, no it does not matter where you mount your H-Field. I can even be underground such as in a basement.
The only criteria is that it needs to be away from any source of interference. This can easily checked with an AM radio tuned to an of radio spot in the lower frequencies. Walk around an find the most quiet spot. Hopefully  it is not in an awkward spot such in the middle of you living room. Smile

Thank you for the fast answer. I was afraid that the wooden wall would affect the reception.
