 ```I wonder about your situation - setup... You say you have 47 feet of window line feeder... Hmmmm... that would put it, at best, only 47 feet above ground, assuming the center of your dipole is exactly above your rig, and it is outside in the back yard on the ground.... But, I am sure that is not the case, and given your description of how the feed line comes down around the gutters, I presume your dipole hangs just a little bit above your roof. If you have two story home, then I am guessing it runs very close to the roof. Consequently, I am thinking it is difficult to tune because it is hanging just way too close to the roof, gutters, downspouts, and whatever else you have hanging around - especially if you have metal masts or stand offs or supports. Just how close is it to the rest of the stuff in your yard? How high is it off the ground? What metal and other objects are near it. How do you support it? Tell us as much as you can. ================= Richards -- K8JHR =================== Tim Duffy K3LR wrote: > sides are exactaly 123 feet and the 450 ohm line is 47 feet to the atr-30 ================================================== _______________________________________________ _______________________________________________ TowerTalk mailing list TowerTalk@contesting.com http://lists.contesting.com/mailman/listinfo/towertalk ```
