Hi everybody,<p>Why is it when you are picking up a lot of interference on a radio and whenever you touch the anteanna the signal clears right up? I am thinking that the impedance of the anteanna does not match up with that of the anteanna input. <p>Thanks <p>Bryon
Touching the antenna changes the impedance of it, and you being a large body of water and now a large mass of antenna and all, .....Static is like little BBs against Goliath, .....they hit your large water mass and don’t affect it much.<p>Meaning you absorb the static and it doesn’t move you at all unlike the lightweight antenna, and heterodyne circuitry which is ultra sensitive.
