When working with the RCS-5 2-30 MHz chirp receiver I tried a number of different antennas.
I found that my McKay Dymec DA-100 (the best active antenna on the market at the time) didn't come close to the
performance of the B&W BWD 1.8-30 T2FDantenna.
In my opinion using a chirp receiver is the best way to evaluate a receive antenna for many reasons. Second best would
be listening to beacons.
