Old saying, hight is might, but a lot depends on your own set up, coax, what antenna and what location you are in, testing and looking what will work for you, good luck in your radio hobby

At this time of year the noise increases as people put on their Xmas lights, especially those LED type. See where it is in January once everyone has taken them down.

yes this old noise crap when i was using my silver rod very little noise but the new A99 went up, yes i here all them shouting why did you buy that , The wind wrecked my silver rod, so that is why i have the A99 and i am to old to be up and down ladders, now on uk40 there is some noise about sig 5, but on mid band a lot less and as i move down the freq nothing and at 25mhz nothing very clear, so we do not use uk40 up our way we use midband Am Fm SSB we still use if there is a lift,but its mostly midbands now
