I’ve been having problems with my radio station lately and it has really started to bother me. I’ve used two antennas and haven’t been satisfied with either one of them. Before I was using a 40-80-160 dipole but the 80m portion was too long and didn’t want to work right being near the 40/trapped 160 legs. Then a friend (KN4KL) let me borrow a Carolina Windom. I don’t think I ever got it working right either. Probably because my yard isn’t that big and I end up not being able to string it up straight.
I think there is a short somewhere, though, as my receive audio comes and goes and I’ve been told that my transmissions are the same way; one second they are there the next second no one can hear me.
Anyone got any suggestions?
