“Will the one from sstran work with a talking house.”
Well, you must hook it up to the “External” antenna connector, which, strangely, is a 75ohm F connector, like for cable TV. The standard wire antenna the TH unit comes with is for wideband application, it doesn’t exactly match whatever frequency you’re on … the internal tuner for it is different than connecting an external tuned system.
The antenna you’re considering will probably match tuning better and get you some more range. I’d say you’d have to connect it as an external antenna. Not sure if it uses a matching network inside.
There is an almost overwhelming amount of antenna and antenna-related threads on this forum. Before you make a final decision, you should probably peruse as much of it as you are able to digest.
Also, keep in mind there are a number of other factors which affect efficiency and range of midband AM … the main one being your ground … which also has a ton of threads here.
