My comment which you refuted in post #45 was based on what you wrote in post #2 which is:
“I have a Talking Sign, certified. Currently it gets poor range, mounted inside at ground level, with 2 stories above it and many townhouses surrounding it. That same transmitter, installed in a rancher, with the wire antenna just reaching over the rooftop (about the same height, maybe a little higher), got over a mile range in a direction with open fields.”
Did I misinterpret that this explanation was for different sites (townhouse and rancher)?
You could help me understand better if you will provide more details about the experiments, especially how you raised the antenna as described in post #45 without changing the site configuration. In other words, how do you know that the range change was due to changing the antenna height only and not something else?
