Good morning All:
OOPS! Missed them. There was really strange propagation last evening
for the 3B7C group. I could always hear them, but not well enough to
call. Occasionally they would pop-up to a readable level, but only
long enough for one set of calls, and then they were gone again, for
significant periods of time. This brings to mind(mine at least) the
Assume I have two receive antennas. Antenna nr. 1 has a RDF of 7.2
dB, and the prime angle of radiation is 32 degrees.
Antenna nr. 2 has a RDF of 9.2 dB at a prime angle of 23 degrees.
What will be the actual difference in readability of the same signal
on the two antennas?
I am currently using antenna nr.1, and am curious as to whether or
not it is worth the effort to build antenna nr. 2. Antenna nr. 2 is
the absolute best I can do given the amount of real estate I have to work with.
Thanks & 73,
