VACTROL - Photo at right - Flag/KAZ/EWE and Pennant antennas have become increasingly popular for a.) Beating interference from local pests and noise sources and b.) erecting an antenna in small back yards that have tremendous back to front ratios - often exceeding 35db - which can reduce local AM powerhouses and open same and adjacent frequencies for the DX!
We design and build (what we think is a very elegant and effective) VACTROL Antenna termination controllers for FLAG/PENNANT/KAZ/EWE Antennas! Details over here.
We run a forum on DXer.ca - it is for radio enthusiasts - to participate you need an account on DXer.ca - FORUM SPAM will not be tolerated on the website - the website and forum is for radio enthusiasts only - no exceptions. Spammers will be punished with bad Karma! We still have registration on the DXer.ca for now - to facilitate discussion - but PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, do not register on this site and then post rubbish to the forum - all POSTS are moderated so save YOUR time and MY time by not posting NON-RADIO-RELATED stuff to our venerable forum!
