Using Mobile Antenna At Home N1CAK 1 week, 3 days ago
The fact that you are being heard 25 miles away says your antenna is probably working fine. I would double check frequencies both transmit and receive and PL codes. Also check the squelch level. You may have it set too high. It might be that the receiver is somewhat deaf to week signals. Do you hear noise when you open the squelch or press the monitor button?

Just a double check are both radios on the same frequency and listening to FM?

See Subpart C -- Special Operations 97.201(b) Auxiliary station.

That rule was changed many years ago from 220Mhz to 2 meter and shorter. See section (b) for frequency exceptions.

Will mast hold up in high wind? w1eek on 31/5/18
Not sure I understand your setup. Are you talking about a 1.5 inch or a 2 inch mast 1/4 wavelength above your house?
