I'm a casual reader of t his part of the forum. What did you use? (I'm using VERY old 1980's RV/Boat antennas at my place...amplified..and very happy...but they were more "UHF" oriented even back then, so they're perfect now.) Fun to experiment with different antennas. I have a small "real" favorite these days on Amazon that I gave to friends in a very wooded, very difficult area of Michigan and it helped them. Curiosity about antennas always comes to the surface when I see conversations like these!
