At 1:30 PM CDT I turned on the car and tuned the radio to 1550 kHz. The signal from AMT3000 was received full strength right alongside the house. The transmitter/antenna was about 60′ away, facing south. I backed down to the street, north, then slowly drove west.
Despite the fact that the antenna is back behind the row of houses, it came in at grade A strength for 270′ on the street.
The compound angle that points back to the transmitter gives a straight line distance of 388′, figuring in the 152′ from the back of the house to the street.
The weakened signal at the boundaries lasted two more lots, approximately 180 additional feet.
The next step will be to install the AMT5000 and see how well it does by comparison. The weather is changing. It went from sunny to windy and cooler in two hours. If tomorrow at around 1 PM is somewhat like the weather today, I’ll do the second half of this signal contest.
