Bill, Thank you for the kind comments….
Yes the whip does work fine but you need a large ground system to make it work, originally I had 8-30-40 foot radials and got 2-3 miles… which incidently is not bad…. but I wanted my whole island completely under my coverage… so I soldered extra lengths to the existing radials and added 56 extra radials 50 feet long each… and let me tell you the range just got better… I believe that if the radials are are 1/4 wavelength to the height of the transmitter it’ll cover 10 miles or more… there are people in the other camp that suggests their transmitter can be heard 10 miles… whether clear or not is the issue… now I salt my radials after each rain to keep the conductivity high and use a sprinkler system to keep the soil moist….
Your comments below seem interesting… but I believe ‘sync’ the signals on two or more transmitters is what we want… I’m going to place another order for another AMT-3000, because I believe I’ve found a way to do it… if I do it’ll be something everyone can do… no need to ‘sell’ anything… if you’ve built the transmitter, you have the knowledge to make the change…. let me know how it works out with the change above…..
