Ok. So we all are concerned by the antenna system ground wording of Part 15.219. As John stated, the FCC included the installation instructions as part of the certification which allows for elevated ground connections (wonder what the definition of that is.) So it would seem to be OK according to that at least for the RangeMaster.
My question: If I choose to operate under Part 15.209 and can accurately determine my field strenght to be in compliance, am I not restricted to the 100 mw / 3 meter rule? Ok, Ok, you may get more field strength (signal) under 15.219 but I’d love to see how a larger antenna coverage pattern would compare even at a lower field strength. I have an engineer friend that works for a local radio station who’d verify my signal to be compliant.
If nothing else, my transmitter could be in here rather than out there.
