Well I modded my transmitter and mounted it to my antenna, ran a really quick cat fice run for power and audio to my computer room where my studio… its 1130 pm and there is tons of crosstalk on my station at night.. so its not a good judge of my antenna. But I get my signal one block from my antenna before it becomes apart of the crosstalk.. I didn’t tune it at all just slapped it in there and turned it on, as my multimeter is at work.. I do have to say just having a real antenna doubled the range over the tuned wire antenna.
Tomaarrow will be a much better test, I will actually tune my transmitter to my none adjustable mast an get some clear airwaves… then I should have a good judge of what this antenna does..
I do think I will need to convert the mast to be adjustable.. ths won’t be a big deal and i will pick up the copper pipe and cap for that at lunch tomarrow..
I willfirst tune it to the non adjustable mast, and note its range then convert it to the adjustable one, and note its range and report back.
