CogentRadios Posted March 28, 2021 Report Share Posted March 28, 2021 Completed the 50' Rhon45 tower install yesterday, mounted a tram 1450 uhf antenna on the top and fed it with 1/2" EDC4-50 hardline. I used a Comet mkII caa analyzer at the end going into the vxr7000 and it shows 49 ohm and 1.1 swr output is 50watts.So everything seems near perfect, I am on a high point but I can only get into the repeater from about 1/4 mile away. The only thing I think can be an issue is the Tram 1450 antenna, it is just a wonderful dummyload. I ordered a DB408-b and a 22' chrome molly mast as a replacement. I was hoping to get at least 2 miles out of this current system. Anyone have any suggestions? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
