Well today i tuned my antenna, with the non adjustabe mast.. I could not get ober 8 volts on the multimeter when testing (i barrowed my dads meeter).. So I decided to hack off the mast and make it adjustable..
After having on the top and making the new adjustable mast, I was able to peak it at about 10 volts.. while transmitting a good signal..
This is getting me a great signal 2 blocks away and a listenabe signal 1/3 of a mile away.. this was done at about 2:00pm while the bands were clear from bounced signals..
Now at 6:00pm the signal get broken up a pretty easly.. but still cobvers most of town..
So Im getting about 1/3 of a mile. form this..
IF i had more time to test i would put a test tone on so my metering would be easier to do.. I think i can tweak quite a bit more ti get this signal a 1/2 mile ut wih out any problelm..
