#267 RECEPTION IN IBIUNA SP, BRAZIL – November 23, 2020
(RG) - Rudolf Grimm, PY2-81502 SWL 
. Rx: Kenwood R-1000     
. Indoor loop antennas: AlexLoop SML7-30, AOR LA-400 magnetic loop, Quantum Loop Radio + Potomac FL-31 Filter . All Brazilian stations all in Portuguese language  
. Times in UTC.     
+++ This is a test of possibilities using indoor loop antennas in my new radio-shack, that is being assembled in my second home (rural area of Ibiuna), in a beautiful landscape, mountains and dense forest, around 910 m above sea level. 
In this place, many new sounds: horses, cows, roosters, ducks, dogs, birds, etc... And, last Saturday night we were visited by a type of a fox that lives in the Atlantic Forest of the region. A fantastic scene. The flashlight used outside left no doubt, as well, as the footprint marks on the fresh cement at the floor.
The antennas used on this action: AlexLoop SML7-30 (7 to 30 MHz, passive antenna); Quantum Loop Radio Plus + (active antenna, used for medium waves, from 530 to 1710 kHz - very sensitive, and very directive) - this, connected to a Potomac FL-31 filter; and, a AOR LA-400 antenna (active antenna, covering 153 kHz to 30 MHz). The three antennas with an excelent result. There was no a comparative test, but just a seek for a good result. And it was posible. 
As a next step, I will apply one or two external antennas (perhaps my new W6LVP antena and the MiniWhip PA0RDT, ... or...), seeking to know the best environment for a definitive decision: to use better internal or the external antennas, or even both. The actual verification was very good.
