    Based on 40m, 100w, Omni at 62' to tip. I think the mountains and my base elevation is killing it. This is in NC where I just bought property.. base elevation is 15.1 meters.. like 50'..

    Let them get their stuff back on line and on the air first...

    Florence wasn't exactly a "Henderson" from the Brady Bunch...more like a Starbucks on Steroids...
