I have been reading your comments on the saq sdr vlf rx, posted some years ago, which are most useful.
I have recently downloaded and installed an updated version but that isn't of any real consequence.
I have one question, I hope you may be able to help me with so I may get the rx working. You mention you should connect the antenna to the left input of the computer soundcard input. My computer has a single 3.5 mm audio in socket and I have a 3.5 mm cable and stereo plug, which has red, white and blue wires. Which wire should I connect the antenna to anf if I then plug into the audi input socket - will it work?
Any help would be much appreciated.

Great web site, lots of interesting information. I am visiting relatives in Workington from May 8th thru to May 22, and am bringing my ICOM 7000 and a Buddipole antenna. Hope to catch you on the air or an eyeball QSO! Heading to the Workington Ham club meeting when in town.

I really have enjoyed your website, and I am going to try some of the CW apps. I have been licensed over 50 years and had to copy code for my ticket, and I am now getting back into it.
Tnx -- 73

Wish you good health. My prayers are with you.
There's never a day when I don't remember you especially when I check onto VOAProp every morning.
God bless you.

Great site. Good information on stealth antennas. I don't have a need to go stealth, but with limited antenna options at my home, these are great ideas.

Looking at your loop it says to use a 250pF capacitor.
I have a 500pF capacitor and was wondering if this would also work along the same way as your loop article on your site?
Any help would be grateful.

Many thanks for your excellent articles on stealth operating, and especially on how to handle antenna issues. Much appreciated here in Seattle.

The WSPR work you've done at 20mw is very impressive! Also appreciated your review of the MFJ loops. I have similar antenna restrictions to yours and am now much more optimistic about setting up a stealth station and seeing what is possible!

A long time ago in a place far, far away . . . . I had programmed a software in GWBASIC & DOS very similar at VOAProp. in the followed years I have always promised myself to move it to Windows, but because of my laziness. . . . . Good, now I have found VOAProp. Very thanks Julian!

Hi Julian. I have what is probably a "stupid" question about your QFH antenna for NOAA reception.
Every article I found specifies millimeter accuracy. Your howto specifies 221.6cm for the longer loop and 122.15cm for the short halves.
But here comes the question. Is the space needed for soldering the wires accounted for? When you connect two wires, there has to be certain amount of overlap. And when millimeter accuracy is needed, the size of the overlap matters.
Thanks for the website, it contains a lot of interesting information.
I was a bit saddened by your linux article though. I understand the software choice argument and agree with it, but there were too many inaccuracies there about the support for binary distributed software (there are Linux Standard Base, /opt and .local mechanisms..) and you never mentioned the distribution's name.
