I currently have a wire colinear antenna, second floor window, current max range (last 48hours) is 100-150NM.
Have called in a favour from a “mate with ladders” to fix an aerial to the roofline of the house.
So I dont need to get a “better” aerial refitted in the future, whats the “best” type of aerial for this?
Have seen people report good things about 4 and 8 segment (?) ground plane antennas? Are these any better than wire colinear?
I’ll be looking for one of the recommended types on ebay etc (I see people make and sell them on there), so if someone can mail me a link to a recommended one, that’d be ideal!
Secondly, slightly nervous of grounding / lightning - any recommendations om the best way to ground the antenna?
