|Walter (KQ4JT) I tried to send you an email but your QRZ.com email address came back. I see there's a Davis Weather Station in Le Roy, NY just wondering if it's yours. We love our Davis Vantage Pro2 wireless and haven't had any RF problems, but I only run 100 watts. If you want more details look me up, I'm good on QRZ.com with my email address. Here's the link to our Davis WeatherLink internet data feed:

|Why isn't there more action on ARRL forum?||AA6E||on 24/9/12|
|First I would like to say I enjoy the forum and have learned a lot by reading some posts. As stated by others, an email sent to any thread that you are involved in would be great. The gray lettering on a gray background (Read Bing definition; dull, dreary, monotonous) isn't the best format. Another common comment I read is exposure, needs more. I hope the Forums survive, some good information in here!

Glad you found the post, it's been very popular! See my comments above, (June 5th, 2012) on running a longwire while on vacation at OBX. I barely had a ground system and it worked great so I would think yours would work fine also. I'm planning on installing a 203' run this fall at the house after the leaves fall.

I’m no antenna expert so do some research of your own too. You didn’t say how you have your antenna mounted but the usual convention is to use vertical polarization on FM (most repeaters) and horizontal polarization for CW and SSB. Most repeater antennas are vertically polarized to enhance the operating range of mobile and portable units using vertical whip antennas.
Trying to work somebody who is cross-polarized with you results in a large dB signal loss so you may not be heard at all.
I’d also suggest you update your QRZ.com page with your email address for quicker answers. Look me up on QRZ and send me an email with any other questions you may have, it’s always fun to help!
