Thanks for the help. I have been ill and have not been able to get up on the site to post a reply. It sounds like that a rangemaster
with a good ground set up would probably provide a good coverage.
I know some people place their ground wires just above the soil and
others burrry their very deep under the ground. It would seem to
be the ideal to burry them deep as possible to keep them moist.
I would think the closer you get the ground radials to the water
table would provide the best ground so they a in wet soil.
out here I could get by with 3 to 4 feet under the ground..
I know that 120 to 128 ft in length radials should be good. I am just
wondering if 8 radials would be good or would 16 radials be the
ideal amount burried under the ground. I also like the ideal of
of getting your mast pounded deep into the ground also.
I know that Rangemaster has claimed 2 miles transmissions. has anyone
ever get this type of coverage out of this transmitter. I can see
the 1 mile coverage,but if I can get more that would be nice.
I do have the TS-100,but want to get a better transmitter that would
have better coverage, but if I start getting more than 1 mile coverage
I really want a FCC certified transmitter so the FCC cannot give me
a hard time.
The TS-100 only has about 85% modulation and I know the rangemaster
can exceed the 100% modulation which could provide clearer modulation
for the further distances from the actual transmitting site.
Again thanks everyone. I really think I am going to go with the
Rangemaster type transmitter. Now I know you have to buy a CB
antenna to go into the rangemaster. Has anyone figure out which
CB antenna works best with the Rangemaster. Since it has to tune
up to those antennas. I know you can buy a 108 steel whip or
the 108 inch fiber glass whips. Which really works best with the
rangemaster transmitter ?????
