but...my leading wire goes half way round the house as my long wire is in the back garden but my computer is in the front room, I used copper wire (unshielded) and normal coax cable as my leading wire, seems to work ok (ish) but maybe could do something better?

Hello Paul,

I built an EWE antenna about 9 month ago. For descirptions typ
EWE antenna in Google. I only can confirm all the positive experiences described by other users mainly the low noise of this antenna and the rejection of backwards signals on MW. This is my first antenna to pick up 1296 or 1440 during daylight compared to my other antennas (30 m wire or ALA1530). Also on SW this antenna works very fine.

Thanks for the info Bernd, I looked at the EWE antenna via google and it's sounds like my kind of thing but as I know nothing about antennas i find the diagrams I've seen not very good for me if you have any diagrams or any more info on how to build one I would be grateful.
