Ferrite rod N/S orientation and connection
I have just got my system Blue working. I have made an enclosure for the two ferrite rods. From other posts I will connect the knotted wires to the A-1 and B-1 terminals and the others to the A-2 and B-2.

The rods are 90 degrees to each other but which rod (A or B) has to point north/south? And by "point" I mean the long axis lies on the N/S line. Obviously the other will lie on E/W.

Nowhere can I find anything other than an annotated photo show the rods with E-W and N-S but it does not say which one goes to which terminal.

As we are are generating a vector of the strike direction which will be the sum of both of the rods' signals then I assume that it does matter.
