I have been playing with some scripts that were posted here in the forums, I would like to see for some more help in figuring out how many of you are running your feeders. I understand, no two feeders are alike, but there has to be some rule of thumb and pitfalls to watch out for.
based on the scripts results, I settled on running the Prostick Plus on gain of 28 or 29.7 and I am getting the following
Given that the noise floor seems to be lower , I would have thought my range would be pushing to the limits of the horizon, but seems to drop off well before that.
Edited info below:
280’ AGL, ANT220K discone, 7/8 Heliax
Discone is what I have access to - The feedline is terminated into a Minicircuits splitter
ZESC-2-11+, one port feeds into a Minicircuits VBFZ-1065+ filter prior to going into ProStick Plus.
without the filter, there is front end overload. The other port is a second RTL, I have been experimenting with UAT
