Hi: Here was the set up that i can remember been a long time ago.
1) I lived in the country,1 mile outside town.
NOTE: Lived in valley but house was up on a good hill.
2) Transmitter was set up 50 feet away from house.
3) Tower support was made of 1x1x1 at 8 feet long 3 section, 24 feet total length.
4) Antenna was made out of 10 or 12 awg wire copper 6 inches straight section on top with a coil section about a 1 foot long and about 6 inches in width.
NOTE: It’s been so long on antenna this is all i can remember and not sure if information is correct.
It was my first antenna design i tried to see how it would do and it did good in valley and up on hill area for what it was,But did have some dead spots.
The original wire antenna that came the kit didn’t give you a good range so then i raised the transmitter with the wire antenna up higher and got a better range.
Then i said that won’t work and put it up higher with a better antenna and saw bigger range.
