It will be a little while before I put together the new Backend –
hopefully in the Spring. I know can add the 1609 to the current Backend,
due to the aging of that motherboard I prefer to start fresh.
And if I may pick your brain again, what is considered a ‘high gain
antenna’? One I am currently using is an AntennasDirect DB2E; from the
Peak Gain: 11.8 dBi @ 698 MHz
VSWR: 3.0 Max 470 MHz to 698 MHz
Next section lists ‘Boresight Gain’ (whatever that is)
470 MHz 9.06 dBi
WHBF “ 4” RF 4 69 MHz (midpoint) Bettendorf
Ant.Farm (3 mi)
KWQC “ 6” RF 36 605 MHz 1000 KW ERP Orion Ant. Farm
WQAD “ 8” RF 38 617 MHz 1000 KW ERP Orion Ant. Farm
KLJB “18” RF 49 683 MHz 1000 KW ERP Orion Ant. Farm (18 mi)
WQPT “24” RF 23 527 MHz 80 KW ERP Orion Ant. Farm
KQIN “36” RF 35 599 MHz 368 KW ERP Orion Ant. Farm (18 mi)
Ignoring the VHF station which I could probably use a wet toothpick as
an antenna in general the weakest station (WQPT) I have the most problem
receiving; the highest frequency station (KLJB) also can give lots of
pixelation. Again the windier it is the higher the probability of a
I’m not expecting a definitive answer but perhaps you or someone sees
something I don’t because I don’t have the training and so give
guidance. As Dad said, I know enough to be dangerous! <g>
