HI i see this http://www.smyth.net/tower2a.jpg
, and i have a question for you,
you no have problem with connector type N in the box, the connectors have contact with the metal of the BOX, i am thinking you can loss db there.
What you think about this, maybe the BOX work a Antenna or parcial antenna
???? i am thinking you need to isolate this connectors,
and how work the 110 VAC in the BOX, about the ground?
[quote="mperdue"]YES! I finally made some progress!
I had another 5.8mhz Grid antani arrive just the other day and since it was so nice figured I'd go set it up.
I used a 6ft cable at the tower and bolted the directional up to the leg of the tower and I am getting -54/-69 strenth (on the station).
It came up to 36Meg link for a while but now it's jumping up and down and falling all the way back to 6Meg.
So at least I am making some progress.
(the 22db grid that I am now using on 5.8ghz)
(left is 2.4ghz right is 5.8ghz)
(front round grid is a 5.8ghz directional)
