Leaves gone >> more messages!


I find it interesting that after a cold snap and a wind event that stripped almost all the remaining foliage from the trees that surround my antenna, my range and message traffic has gone way way up!

I would have expected some effect but not the marked change I am seeing!


Very interesting. Wish the wind would blow a bit off the tops of the surrounding hills :slight_smile:


A look at my VRS charts found two trees blocking close to the house. One redwood can act as control. I spent yesterday raking half the leaves from the other. When the rest come down, it will be ‘interesting’. :unamused:


Copy, redwood is evergreen of course thus won’t lose its leaves / needles.

My experience is muddled in that I also roof mounted a external antenna in the middle of this.
