Scientists and laymen have had such debates since the beginning of time... 5,700 years ago.

Hi Fred,
While you're in contact with Steve run by him your theory that a broadband antenna will yield  a poorer receiver  S/N than a narrow band antenna.

Dale,

Looks like you haven't got the good grace to accept you weren't completely right either.
But then again good manners is not an american virtue.

I was simply interested in Steve's answer as there were 2 issues in your posts I disagreed with:
1. Resonance improves S/N
2. A narrow band antenna would yield a better S/N than a broadband antenna.

Perhaps you could tell me what part of my posts were in error though.

It's on the previous page in this thread, Dale. I think we're all in agreement now, gentlemen, and that's good to see.

I use a loop of wire fed with cable tv coax as a sophisticated swl antenna.
