Rx: Sony ICF2001D (from the 80's!!!!) 
Antennas: DZ45 Square loop + C.Crane Twin Coile 
An excellent radio listening experience last night, combining vintage
equipment with a modern reception technology. 
The receiver: Sony ICF2001D from the 80s, working perfectly. Antennas:
Active square loop DZ45 (Denis Zoqbi's home-made construction, enhanced by
Rene Passold), 45 cm in diameter, 22 wire loops and variable capacitor +
C.Crane Twin Coile Antenna.
(Inductive) connections: the DZ45 loop on a rotating stand (for ease of
tuning), the C.Crane antenna next to the DZ45 antenna loop, connected to the
C.Crane control module. 
>From the C.Crane control module, the connection to the small C.Crane ferrite
component that was placed over where the Sony ICF2001D receiver ferrite is
Results: No electrical noise at receptions, what usually occurs! Good signal
amplification. A more pronounced selectivity and gain. I was very happy with
what I listened last night. Especially, about the quality of the results.
