Hello Gary and all,
Well, I live in the middle of a Red Pine
Forrest. The trees attenuation
literally "SAPS" the VHF UHF signals up. I
wonder, however, what will happen when I
get the KLM 10-30-7 Log Periodic at 100'. That
will make the antenna about
30' above the pines. I emagine that the
evergreens will have some affect
on the signals. Who knows, might help-hi hi.
