Miami Center Feed - WPB RCAG
« on: December 27, 2010, 06:53:27 PM »
OK, I got this feed working a little better  :-o......I had to switch radios and change antennas. :evil: I got it picking up off the back of the corner reflector antenna that is facing in the opposite direction. I use it for the other feeds, however it's still about 30 degrees off target for them. I could not hear the ground side of the transmissions using the intended yagi which is 45 degrees off target. The BC-350 radio normally used did not appreciate the change...so tried the Icom - no problem, I finally settled on using the Vertex VXA-220 until I
can make the needed repairs AGAIN! Gonna have to run a nut and bolt through the antennas and mast, that should work :-D :-D RIGHT!   If it doesn't then will just have to crank it down every weekend....like I have no life.

sorry....I know it could be worse. You guys in the Northeast and out west have much worse weather, etc. problems.

P.S.  temps going down here in South Florida again into the 30's and maybe the 20's...holly shi :-o
