Okay so the feed is up and running again!
While I had the antenna down, I upgraded to a much stiffer metal pipe as the mast since the last one was mostly at the mercy of the wind. I also did a better job of hiding the cable so hopefully my landlady wont know the better.
Unfortunately, I realize that I do have what sounds like a ground loop hum. The scanner is grounded to the computer chassis but that doesn't seem to make a difference. There is a wall electrical outlet very close by so that could be it, and I'll try to get a short BNC extension to move the scanner further away from that. Any other advice is always appreciated.
For those of you who listen to LAX frequently, let me know if the quality has gone up/down/stayed about the same.
Remember, I gotta shut this feed down when I end my lease mid-june, so until then, enjoy!
