KSDL upgrade
« on: April 27, 2011, 07:43:19 PM »
While the KSDL feed has only been up for a few days, I'm not quite happy with the tower reception. I will be replacing the attic mounted DPD Air Blade Indoor antenna with a KB9VBR J-Pole to see if that helps. If it doesn't, I'm moving the feed setup to a different location 1.4 miles from the airport. It is currently 4.6 miles away. Downtime will be minimal.

Thanks for listening!

The new antenna and supporting equipment should arrive on Monday, so I hope to have a better quality feed by Wednesday, 5/11/11.

The new J-Pole antenna is installed and the tower quality is a little bit better. It's not the reception I would like, but maybe I'm just a perfectionist.

Thanks for listening!

The KSDL feed will be down for a couple hours, starting now, for computer maintenance (feline fur extraction).

Feed is down for a bit due to storms in the area. I apologize for any inconvenience.
