Re: wanted aerial pics

Dont you think ofcom looks up at tower blocks and finds a dipole on it and signal on their meter says its around that area they will go up and have a look. If they cant see any dipole on the roof they wont think its that tower block. I’m guessing you’ve not had experience of rigging up? Get the aer...

Re: Damian Alert!!!!

I've had my run ins with him and he once threatened me with the DTI many years ago so I tracked him down with the intention of doing him plenty of harm.

Re: 150 watt rig

Re: 150 watt rig

A 50 from that height will only lack in a gaps. A 150 will fill those gaps and probably a few miles extra on the periphery. The aerial would help with the 50. A wise choice helps with those gaps but the periphery stays the same. Hi-gain from Manor Heights was helpful - Wrekin, not so much. Resulted...
