Hello Dr Jim,

Thank you for your guidance. Setting up the base station next week, as I will order an antenna this week. Looking forward to getting on the air.

Hello Doug,

Thank you for your guidance. My call sign is KI5KFA. Will have to try getting onto the repeaters. 

It's good to see everyone's response.


Re: First Base Station Antenna

Hello Timothy,

Thank you for your guidance. I purchased one this evening. 


Re: First Base Station Antenna

Antenna gain and coax loss are absolutely factors in station performance but line of sight, dictated by antenna height (HAAT) will be the dominant factor in a given station's effective range.  No amount of power or antenna gain can manufacture range, only height can do that.  Yes, enough feedline loss could ultimately overcome signal strength and effective range.  But factoring typical system and path losses for a basic V/U FM station, you are far and away better off to have a high antenna with some feedline loss vs a low antenna with little feedline loss.

Re: First Base Station Antenna

But you are not calculating in the gain of the antenna or antenna height.
On 2M/440 on Diamond v200 that would be +6.2dB/+8.4dB.
Even if the power is a complete wash and equal to the rubber duck the height above ground will make a tremendous difference on VHF/UHF as well as being outside the house.

Well, Mark, I wonder about that.  According to https://kv5r.com/ham-radio/coax-loss-calculator/ , the loss in 100' of RG-8X coax at the upper end of the 70cm band (450MHz) is 8.281 dB if the SWR is 1.0:1, and increases to 8.455 dB if the SWR is 1.5:1. So with his 5 W HT connected to that coax, his output power is 0.743 W if SWR is 1.0:1, and only 0.714 W if SWR is 1.5:1. He loses 85 - 86% of his HT's power.

The specs for a Comet GP-3 base antenna show a 7.2 dBi gain on 70cm, and for a similar Diamond X50A a 7.2 dB gain on 70cm. So the gain from those base antennas does not make up for the coax loss (but if his HOA allows the antenna at significant height, he may improve his coverage nontheless).

https://diamondantenna.net/Product_Catalog/base_station.html

Mr. Moen might first try the inexpensive 34 - 37" HT antennaes, such as the Pryme AL-800 (5.6dB@440MHz) or the Diamond RH770 (5.5dB@430MHz).
