When I get my license we'll have to talk to each other. How are you with picking up Wolcott out in Portland? I'm picking them up fairly decent down here in Ansonia since the tower is up on that big hill.I have not had any problems infact i think it has help the Recieve on both scanner by having them like that. The 3rd antenna is a VHF/UHF ham antenna. that came with my Icom. I don't use it to TX much becuase i don't have my ham Lic yet. I hope i will be able to do so soon tho.
