It would seem to me that the vertical is just not doing the job and I am seriously thinking that selling the Sidekick would be the best, use the money to further help out the improving the signal at VE3WDM. I am thinking of adding a 80 meter mobile whip dipole to the attic. One more thing I may try this weekend before the Sidekick comes down is 17m comparison. The Sidekick against the 20 meter dipole tuned to 17 meters. I can add one more but not sure what band to add...this is were I ask my blog followers. What improvements if any can you suggest and what other band should I add?
|30 meters with vertical|
