Re: Antenna for my Sony reciever

Paul Butzi (W7PFB)

I have a little Grundig that is, I think, in the same sort of class as your Sony.  I’ve had good luck with a simple long wire antenna.  A dipole might do better but the first thing you might try is just stringing out a wire.  If that works well, there are a lot of long wire antennas on reels for sale on Amazon and ebay.

Hey hiya snovarcians,
I have a couple of Sony ICF-SW7600GR radios I keep for emergency receivers. I have an external antenna jack and thought of making a simple dipole.
I have ferrite beads on every single switching power supply so I hope noise won’t be a problem.
I’d appreciate any thoughts, insights, tricks, tips, and traps anyone might share.
Back in the 80’s I got a lot of use out of this little guy and I’d like to per him back to work. Here’s a picture of the little guy.
