Okay, I've got the AT-6666 and I can hear plenty, but having a hard time TX to the people I can hear so I'm trying to see if there's any improvement to be had in the antenna system. So I have a number of potential solutions I'd like to explore with some people more seasoned in the hobby than I am. Lets assume I don't change the mounting location at all. Currently I have a 4' Firestik FSII mounted on a door jamb mount just above my left rear taillight on a 2003 Xterra. Currently there's about 1' of the antenna above the roofline. Compared side by side, which will perform better, the 4' FSII I have or a 5' FSII? Is the foot really worth the difference? The ratings of both antenna's far exceed the stock output of the AT-6666. Getting a base loaded magnetic roof mounted antenna. Getting a center loaded antenna mounted in the same location I currently have the 4' FSII mounted (I may have to raise the mounting location to get that coil above the roofline). Maybe a 102' whip mounted on my off-road bumper? I think this is probably the least desirable option as it's going to be smacking the car behind me on the highway lol. Just figure that I've got a radio that can put down a decent signal, just want to maximize the potential it already has. I skipped from NC to OH yesterday but that was ONCE and I've been trying for days now. I'd like to at least TRY and get some skip each day. Or better the chance of it.
