    Just had a nice roundtable with the local tech and the vice president of the local radio club. Life is good

    I have been researching new antenna's to go w/ my Sirio 27-4 I currently use an A-99 and thinking of an I Max an a forum I read on Copper Electronics they did on the GP Kit more or less stated if the kit does nothing at all it helps Electronics interference the way it changes the wave .It was quite a lengthy and informative article .

    I am working on a grounding plan, but I need to move my station to the other end of the camper and I'm short on coax. Is 45 feet of Rg8x too lossy, or would that be ok? I've only done short runs in mobiles before, so I have never researched longer runs and I'd like to get some coax shipped today. Thanks

    It just dawned on me to find a calculator, and it said a .6dB loss with 8x compared to 400. Seems like a lot to me, but I'm not sure of the real world difference

    0.6dB is nothing. No worry.
