Neil: I purchased a Talking House direct from Radio Systems last year. It is the New low end modified system. Also purchased the outdoor antenna system. It is mounted on the right of my front steps and grounded to the front water faucet. I get about 3/4 mile without noise and up to 1 mile with noise. I use a dbx 266XL compressor/gate to modulate. Yes distance varies with different weather conditions as all part 15 am xmitters do because of the very low power output. I am very satisfied with the system but I feel my situation is better than most because I have a ground condectivity rating of 30 here in Sibley, Iowa. I have an electrical friend that is going to build a radial underground system after the Winter here is over. This should improve coverage a bit… Good luck on your part 15 plans….
