Antenna installation

The antenna needs to be installed in high position such as the roof of a building or on a mast. On roof tops, the VLF electric field is usually much larger at an edge or near a corner than in the centre of a flat roof. Keep away from other electrical equipment such as heating, ventilation and air conditioning units as these can generate a lot of noise at VLF. The antenna must not be under or even close to other conductors, not even trees, which are grounded at VLF and so tend to short out the VLF electric field.
