Unfortunately I cannot mount the antenna to the roof as it is not strong enough to hold the antenna nor will my HOA allow it (I am skirting the rules as it is
Effect of nearby metal roof on HF and VHF antenna KA0GWU on 13/9/21
Greetings! I have an extremely small backyard and have two antennas installed a no name HF multi band and a MFJ 6M/2M two segment antenna. Right now they are located about 8 ft from a wooden gazebo with a metal roof. I am about to replace the HF with a Hustler 6-BTV and am wondering if I should move it away from the gazebo. The basic question is: how much am I losing in performance with the antenna locations right now and is it worth the effort to move the HF or possibly both thr HF and the VHF. Thanks!
