Yes i can get it but I have to move my antenna to the east, then i lose everything else.Have you tried at all to receive CHEX-DT Peterborough? on CH-12. I can get it just south east of Newmarket.
Thanks. Lots of good info here, but as I mentioned I'm going to have difficulty with the "pan around" part. I'm going to have to set the antenna angle before I hoist everything into the air, and there will be no panning happening after that (unless it's with a rotator).Keep the two smaller lobes in mind when aiming, meaning u should be able to tell where they are as you pan the antenna around.
Quoting myself here ... Any guidance on this specific question?I understand that I need to get the cable lengths identical coming into the combiner from the two antennae. But how do I measure the "start" of the coax run from the 8-bay? Does the measurement start where the signal originates (in either of the two stacked 4-bay elements), or does the measurement start at the combiner that's built into the 8-bay design?
It's the Digiwave ANT-2190 UHF.Missing a critical piece of information What frequency band is the yagi for?
The 8-bay antenna comes as a complete unit with cross members (joining the two 4-bays) already included. I'm going to assume the manufacturer chose that specific length (of cross member) for a reason. Is it common practice to customize the horizontal separation of these units?You also need to determine the optimum horizontal separation, center to center
of the two 4 bays.
Yeah that's a bit of a habit of mine when I dive into a new hobby or problem domain. Core requirements I'm trying to solve with the approach I've chosen:I feel people put too much effort in reinventing the wheel and just cause themselves
