Big one!!! :-) I thought I had cleared it up. Don't read what I said
understand what I mean. I mispoke myself big time in the first statement. I
really was trying to say it doesn't matter and people don't normally check
the impeadance of a antenna for receiveng.
Yeah, that's what i was trying to say! :-)Quote:> A scanning receiver operates accross a much much broader range and no
