ive measured it at 3 different heights. 15, 25, 35 ft and tried changing the degree between the two elements. makes very little difference. cutting would be next. although i hate to cut it at this point. looks ok to me i suppose

NEVER CUT ...just fold it back...remember you have ratio hr on length...so fold a foot back on the 90 side ...6 inches on the 45 side...compare readings.
Also if V or Horz... how ever is final resting place is where?...tune it thr...make changes ...BACK UP Same location...Compare...

Better/worse than needed?

Remember to LOWER frequency ...ADD length
Raise to higher frequency...shorten!!

    My first thought was the i.r.s. may be interested in a long term money making scam without proper taxes being paid..probably more than electronics involved.

    My first thought was why hasn't someone paid him a visit. I mean, his address is posted above.
  • @ beakster1715:
    Good news! I opened an appeal case after eBay sided with superhawkwss6. I also opened an IC3 case & sent that information to eBay. Within an hour they responded, reversed their decision and returned all of my money. Unfortunately, superhawkwss6 stole my CB radio and eBay will likely not suspend or close his account, but rather allow him to continue his criminal activity. I think I'll still file a report with our sheriff's dept (the sheriff is a friend of mine) though I know this type of crime isn't worth their time. This guy needs to be stopped and I'm certainly going to do my best to make that happen.
