What's the recommendation for remote RX antennae, loops or a single whip?

I haven't used the DX Engineering array antenna, but it might be worth
investigating:

https://patents.google.com/patent/US7423588
Only $3,145.55 plus tax and shipping.


Only????? :-)

I was thinking in terms of bits from the junk box
with additional expenditure of only tuppence ha'penny.

But thanks, anyway.


Y'er welcome. However all is not lost. If you search for "Antennas
made from junk", there are a few that look like they might meet your
cost and construction requirements:
https://www.google.com/search?q=antennas+made+from+junk
Please note that it is not necessary to start with junk in order to
produce an antenna that might be declared to be junk. This is not
really a bad thing, as it is well known that ugly antennas work best,
and that nicely constructed antennas rarely work without the addition
of decorative junk.



ROTFL!

You've considered Wellbrook or Cross Country Wireless loops then?
Probably 1/10th of the cost of DX Engineering. Otherwise home-brew take
a look at the G8JNJ design.

Never heard of either company, but what they're offering is what I had
in mind.

ISTR coming across such a published design at one time or another which
is what triggered my OP.

I had in mind two such antennae mounted orthogonally, powered via
the coax cable with a remote controlled goniometer, the PSU for
all to also be pulsed at 1 - 2 mSecs for the servo to drive
the goniometer.


Otherwise home-brew take
a look at the G8JNJ design.


A Jait of that vintage has neither experience of, or business on, HF.
Any Jait of the right moral fibre and worth his salt had plenty
of time to pass the 12WPM Morse test even if
never intending to use the mode.
