Well after having that transmitter all day sitting in my truck, calling my name.. while I was forced to work all day.. At lunch i went and bought all the bits i need for my coil loaded antenna, I cam up with a design that was modified from the magna on the site here.. main diffrence is the pvc for the coil is also going to be the mount pipe tha goes into the ground below the frost line.. the actual antenna will be a 1 inch copper, that screws into the the base/coil.. all wires will be inside the antenna, only the coil will be outside the , and then of cource a water tight box for the transmitter. attached to the base/coil..
I have to say the sound quality of this sstrand transmitter is great.. cant say that the range of the stock setup at night is any good.. cant tune it in a block away with the car radio tonight, the skip tonight is terrable however.. ever shannel has skip.. every single one.. but the cool thing is i can pick up stuff from all over.. but my station is sucking because of it .. the only potential listener right now in me or the neighbor right accross from me.. Im sure a real antenna and grounding system will help greatly.
Im listening to my station on my home theater system and it sounds amazing, better than local stations.. plus the content rocks!
Maybee i wil make a tutorial for my antenna design.. its not radical but it is much easier to build, less cutting, less tools needed should be very sturdy when finished.
