Ok so ya after I do my mini FM transmitter test and if any of the eBayers respond to me about their TH I will test it out and see what happens.
When you said “Seems that this is a larger loop with less turns of wire as opposed to the one you construct around a 3″ PVC pipe….” I never made one before lol. The only thing I so far have made/built was the TV antenna and the cheap car FM transmitter. I am thinking of doing two test with it. Test 1 would be to put the Select-A-Tenna next to the TH AM transmitter antenna and make it point out of my window and see what the range would be. I will also set it to whatever frequency I will be using on the TH. Test 2 would be similar but this time I will put it next to my car radio or hand held radio and drive maybe a half a mile and see if I can pick up my station. From what I so far heard with the TH is I can get around .2-.5 miles of readable reception with the wire antenna. If I use the Select-A-Tenna it may help give it a boost making me pick up my station further than .2 or even .5 miles. I guess I will post this when I get the transmitter and the results but for now I am going to do my last test with the FM transmitter and the TV antenna. I will keep you all posted once I do this.
