The nanoVNA is a bit of cheap kit that anyone with an interest in radio should own. I got mine from Amazon for £44.98.
Earlier this year, before the country went insane again, we managed to have a holiday in Southport. I love Southport. It has just enough junk shops to keep me happy, but not so many that I get Junk Shop Fatigue. Anyway, I was enticed into one by an old GPO telephone in the window, but ended up buying this instead:
Behold, the Midland 98 Plus.
After getting utterly fed up with the antenna that came with my CRT One-N, I did what any sensibe person would do: I asked a mate what he was using on top of his Discovery. The answer: Thunderpole Orbitor.
When I first got back into radio, in October ’19, I decided to start off with a package deal, figuring that I’d start with something basic, and upgrade as required. So I went for a CRT One-N and bundled antenna.
