Re: groundplane aerial

Agreed about the local signal Dave, others have had better local coverage with a 1/4 wave ground plane or dipole

Re: groundplane aerial

A 1/4 wave ground plane has no gain over a standard half wave dipole. Again a half wave end fed vertical also has no gain in real terms, but a 5/8 wave ground plane vertical is said to give 3dB of gain compared to a dipole. A 3dB gain is the equivalent of doubling your power (EPR - Effective Radiate...
