Or at least the reason why i havent placed my sstran in a box outside with copper underneath it.
Kentucky is bad for copper thieves, construction sites have had wiring ripped out of the walls, heat pumps and a wide variety of places.
My fm station is using a 5 foot flag pole on the porch wich is made of aluminum as the antenna with attenuation of course. But i had to do it that way just to keep the neighborhood junkies out of my hair.
We moved here only because we were in a bind and needed a place fast and because we were told this place was a good community.
I guess that person has another definition of “good” lol
As for my sstran, ive kicked around alot of different ideas to protect it from the rif raf here.
One idea popped in my noggin yesterday, what if i made it mobile? Feed audio from a mp3 player?
Place it in a tool box in the back of my van ?
Anyway i think thats main reason I would raise the antenna in the air, but i dont have that luxury here.
Hmmm, ill elaborate more about a mobile am on my blog.
