Thread: Antenna and Propagation

  1. #1

    Default Antenna and Propagation

    I got my Drake 2A out of moth balls as I have been away from Low Band stuff for a while. We live in a community where I can't put up an antenna. I would like to listen around. I picked up an MFJ-1778M G5RV Junior wire antenna. The only thing I could do was to put it in the attic horizontally and I ran the leads in a V. I'm not hearing any chatter just static. Have all the bands been in the dumps lately or could it be my antenna. I had a friend come over with his small Xiegu G90 HF rig and the same thing. I live in the Palm Springs area and the house has a tile roof on it if that makes a difference. Any thoughts or ideas? His rig when you pressed tune seemed to tune up ok according to the digital indicator.

    Thanks
    Rich

    You don't have any foil on the roof do you?
