The SStran at 1680 covers the front 100′ outdoors so that a portable radio gets good signal during frequent yard work. But the back yard’s 100′ is out of range because of being uphill, and a verticle antenna at the ground does not go uphill. Perhaps an angled antenna would work, but for now I’m trying something else.
In the rear I’ll be running a copper wire underground for the full 100′ like a single ground radiator and find out whether that pushes the signal up the hill.
Do you have any predictions?
