    thats frosty up on the tower



    I talked to john henry and frostbite over the last few days. Just checked the distance to richmond ky to mt vernon in on distance from to. It was 197 miles. Thats a pretty good shot! I was hearing him better vert than horz. I dont know what kind of conditions you would call it but I could hear john henry even when he was pointed north. Had 4 to 6 s units on him when he was pointed at me. Conditions dictate where you talk more than type of beam as long as you have them set up right and are in most cases on the same polarity in my low tech opinion . I never say always because conditions vary greatly. I did tell frosty if he ever builds any more antennas I want one! Ive heard for a quad they can handle some serious weather and they do talk great. That being said my 5 element maco impresses the shit out of me but I do have a very good location for my area. Up pretty high and the power lines are underground. I will shut up now.

    How does he do that pointed west?
    Backscatter would be my guess. I get it from stations im not pointed toward at times and point my antenna at them and they go away. This is just a guess.
