Vertical vs. Horizontal vs. Leaky Cable
Posted on August 25, 2011
I am curious, (usually all the time,lol) i have been using my SSTRAN on 800 khz wired into the shield side of 60 feet of cable t.v. coax. Which makes me wonder about whether it is transmitting vertical, horizontal or both? I am almost but not completely convinced that it is horizontal and here is why i think this.
The cable is tucked in between the mobile home and the vinyl facing right above the under pining. (hard to explain and it’s raining so no pictures). Although the cable is horizontal , the signal does manage to radiate at least 50 feet give or take away from cable. After that it just drops off rapidly on a car stereo.
Am i right in thinking this?
