Something interesting for Procaster users. Was on 1630 and didn’t like that I can’t be received on all radios/tuners so I tried 1500 and thought my range would suffer and sure enough the meter peak was less than before with the 3 meter exact length. So thought what will happen if I changed antenna length. Got the idea to cut exactly 10cm(4″) off the length and watched the meter and totally changed the reading. Re-tuned and to my surprise the peak was the same reading I had with the 1630 setting. Signal strength coming off the antenna and coverage was *exactly* the same as 1630. I can now be received on any radio ever made just as good as before. Also found what the manufacturers say, that lengthening the antenna beyond 3 meters makes it worse not better.
