Thanks. I wonder, though, if you weren't disappointed with the elevated
AV3 because of insufficient decoupling between either the pole (if it was
metal) or the shield of the feedline.
The 20-foot length would, I think, disrupt the intended pattern of the AV3.
A former friend once had an R5 roof-mounted, and it performed quite well.
I'll let you know if I get any other feedback.
