|Using downspout on left|
|Wire meets "antenna"|
So the down spout seems to do very well at receiving not as good as my tuned dipoles in the attic but it does do the job. I am in the market for a proper very low profile active receiving antenna as well something I can place outside. As a side line here is the "Murphy moment" it wasn't until I went out to take the pictures today that I realized I was using the much shorter downspout on the right. I have now corrected the problem and will see if the actual long downspout it better at receiving.
