You are such a dear!!!!! Thank-you R2D2 for not giving up on my problem!!!!!!!!!! You are a SUPER DROID of all DROIDS!!!!!!!!! Susan K.
    Makes sense from what you have told me.....I would try 4 also just to see the signal gets too low. It'd a trial and error method since you don't have a field strength meter. Sometimes less is more......

    BTW I meant to ask about the military mast you mentioned. Is that from RC-292 Field antennas? If I recall correctly the RC-292 was made to go up 30' (3' sections). If you are going up 45' by adding 5 more sections you will also need an additional Guy cords/wire set other wise the mast will buckle in the middle.

    These are the 4' sections bought from www.GoVerticalUSA.com , but originally ebay from them. We got 12 sections for $66 plus $20 shipping. We received very clean, like new, and unblemished mast sections. We also paid $50 w/free shipping for the base. Yes, three or four tier of guy wire should do it. Maybe every 8 foot (two sections) or twelve foot (three sections). Thanks, Susie Q

    LOL R2D2, sorry about the 'MAST' photo! Didn't mean to post true to size photos LMAO>>>> OK, another question you sexy Droid, and by the way, nice Thanksgiving family photo! C3PO looked very healthy. He too is one of my favorites all sexy looking! I call him my golden boy, so smooth and sexy. and the size of those smooth fingers....

    OK, back to business LOL..... I am going to mount the CM7777 amp unit just below the antenna. Then I am going to add the 'pads' inside the house, 'cable feed' ,and not at the amp connection at the pole. OK, NOW , once I have my rotor mounted and ready on the 45 feet of guy'd mast, IF I feel I just might need a special droid touch on raising the mast, will you maybe be available and not at short notice, I promise. >? I just want to make sure I have my sexy buns covered....... I have a few others from here on my available list as well. Talk later hun. Susan.

    Did you get any of the guy line plates that slipover the narrow end of the mast section.

    I found the old manual for the military RC-292 on the web.

    Here is a link to it for you to use, I know you are using your own antenna but there is good info in here on how the mast/guys go together and how to get it up in the air.

    I was always appreciative of a well installed mast back in my TV service days. sometimes it was the only way I had for climbing on the roof to check the wires.

    @ROOT these were great field antennas and could easily be erected by 2 men in under 30 minutes getting the antenna about 40' in the air.

    I was lucky enough to get a couple of used ones when I was in the service and gave them to REACT and HAM groups in NY for their temporary field setups when they assisted the police in a search, etc. The best thing about them was their portability and the fact that you could "tune" them without cutting anything. You accomplished this by assembling the elements with different length sections of the main vertical and the ground plane elements.

    They worked really well too.

    Hey, I once knocked out the main command net in FT Gordon Georgia all the way from Ft Drum NY during training as I had my guys so well trained on using two of these as a directional type antenna.

    It ended up that the direction from our base camp to the field camp created a straight line right to FT Gordon. Boy were they pissed at us. My CO had a great laugh over it because they could not believe we were in NY and knock out their communication. Oh in case you didn't know, FT Gordon was one of the main communications training camps (Signal Corps) and I was a graduate of their schools, so he told them that they taught me too well.

    Well, me and my husband John got to meet C Scape today when he came to pick up his items! Very nice young man! Gee, we must have spend a good hour hanging out talking about anything and our poor ORANGE TREE and he gave me a few good tips but said that 'ROOT' would be the man to resolve the issues with it.
    I did remove the grass clippings from around the tree and every bit of weed growth etc. was gone! Nice clean dirt was all that remained. I did put three fertilizer stakes down and tomorrow I am going to give it a soap/water shower top and underneath the leaves because it needs it and it has the 'soot' look in some places. OH, and the big carpenter looking ants that C Scape managed to not get bitten by, they went t their new home in the woods too LOL.
    Anyway, Sure was nice meeting you today and look forward to you and the wife dropping by sometime. Come see us again dear! Take Care. Susan K.

    Is this some top secret project that might get a patent or can you lay it on us so that we may take some of that bounce from your poor head? I can imagine what your head looks like by now you poor dear! Anyway, three or more heads is better than one. SusieQ

    No, RG-11 is thicker than RG-6 with less line loss, especially at the upper freqs. Fitting for RG-6 are different that for RG-11.

    Back from my cruise now. Do you still want the two port amp Susan??

    Hope you had a great trip. Yeh, I have to gather a few more things and I will be in touch. How much of an db gain per port? I will also get a hold of you when I am ready to hoist this mast up if you may be available. Thanks for your help so far!

    Standard gain. 4 port amp = 3.5 db gain per port and 1 port amp = 15 db gain per port. We never used 2 port amps so with 1 port amp and 2 way splitter you get 7 db gain per port.
