View Full Version : Longer antennas - will they reduce glitching while using Core

Hey Guys,

I came across an interesting thread in the "Mini-z Science" section of the forum, where the thread starter had glitch problems in one area of his basement track, and fixed it with a longer antenna. He did not mention that Core was involved...just lots of surrounding metal. Anyone know if using a longer antenna can help reduce or eliminate that occasional annoying glitch while crossing the Core loop?

Thanks,

Ooops, actually, the thread started by the guy with the basement track is this one, though both do contain interesting info...

I had glitching problems that went away when I started using an MX-A TX, which has higher output power. Someone else in the club had glitching with his MR-01, and tried a number of things, including a longer antenna, and he never got rid of it until he got an MR-02. I think a longer antenna would pick up more signal from the TX, but it would also pick up more interference from Core. A longer antenna is cheap. I'd try it, but I wouldn't really expect it to work. There's another MR-01 in the club that doesn't have problems, but he's also using a different TX.
