Thanks for the replies gents. A buddy of mine in electrical department recommended I take an aircraft antenna and get about 50' of RG59 cable and run it up on a 20-30' 1/2" pipe and get copper wire to use as a ground cable. Luckily, the national guard has bundles of used RG59 cable because it is about $80 for 50'! I ahven't had the chance to hook it up yet, but when I do, I'll post the results and some pics! Again, thank you for the assistance.
