AMT5000 is a Different Story
Posted on August 29, 2012
Recently, in connection with my ongoing thread titled “Indoor Antennas”, I upgraded one of my Wintennas (antennas based on loading storm window frames) to include a AMT3000 and a triangular shaped loading coil and a dipolar baseboard grounding system, so that it matched a similar system in another location fed by a AMT5000, and the differences were dramatic.
By far the AMT5000, a transmitter from sstran.com, far outreaches the signal from the AMT3000.
The AMT3000 perfectly fills the indoor space with AM reception, and covers the outdoor property at the same time. But the signal falls off sharply beyond the property boundaries.
On the other hand the AMT5000, given equal conditions, reaches three or four blocks and can be heard in small trace signals for about a mile or more.
If you wish to be the DX signal waiting to be caught, I would suggest the AMT5000.
This is an unpaid testimonial.
