\muhockey86 said:how much gain is too much gain? I live in an area where even the sherrifs dept and its simulcast system have reception problems...im going to be using it with the rs 2051.
muhockey86 said:Hmm...well then how much gain would you recommend? (and what are the signs of overloading?)
muhockey86 said:I'm currently using the pro 2051 withe the rs vhf/uhf outdoor antenna to monitor the 150-160 range. As for distance...i know the main tower is like 8 miles away...but they have a simulcast system with atleast 4 other towers in unkown locations..and I'm just not getting the reception i would like. I would also like to pick up the mo hp better but i doubt this is possible with just one antenna (42.xxx)
timmer said:Macomb Monitor, are you familiar with the LP antenna mentioned above? I am looking for just such an antenna and it is not too expensive. I'm wondering how well it performs. It states on the dpd website that it has 8.3db gain yet is not totally directional. I was wondering if it performs as well as the Create log periodic that sells for over $300.00. Any info on this would be greatly appreciated. thanks.
