I recently installed a Diamond D-130J discone antenna in my attic with the hope of being able to hear the Bluemont repeater (147.300) inside my house. I used Belden 9913 cable and soldered my own PL-259s on both ends. Checked for shorts on both connectors. Sadly I'm barely able to make out anything on 147.300. It's about as bad as it is anywhere inside the house with the rubber duck. I can only pick up the repeater if I'm outside. I'm located in Leesburg in Exeter Hills. Anyone else have trouble getting the Bluemont machine in this area? I'm using both an RS Pro-96 and an RS Pro-26 scanner. Any suggestions on what else I can try to improve reception with this setup?
