I understand the concept that you discuss above but would it be possible for a unit that is say.. 60′ in the air get more coverage? At 10′ off of the ground plane doesn’t give the antenna much room to develop any pattern. I have a platform that is 20′ high. I built a coil to load a section of mast pipe 9′ long and I am getting at least 3/4mi. now with a poor grounding system. The signal is weak at the edges but still can be understood. I believe if I work on the grounding I’ll get more clear range..
Is there any way to include some radiation elevation in that computer program?
