Default Jo Gunn Hillbilly Antenna


Can anyone give me any advice on this Antenna. Recently purchased one, seems to be a good transmitting antenna. Recieving another matter. From
Antenna connection to switch box 72' Swr's 1.5 to 2. Gounded properly
It seems to carry a certain noise level on all channels. I used 3 different radios to make sure that radio was not the problem I am wondering if
anyone has any little tips or suggestions

Thanks

two more questions:

what is the noise floor signal strength?....S?
if the radio has a noise blanker, does it have any effect?
