Today on my single M2 antenna, many times they are Q5.  Their amp has made a difference from yesterday when they were outputting only about 30 watts or so.

For those who want to hear them live from a real antenna (25 meter dish!), check out this link:


Move the frequency slider to about 432.044 and they are 20dB over S9!

Maybe one day, maybe one day.  Hmm, do I have enough room in my yard for a 25 meter dish?

Also, I hear them much better on RHCP.  And I got my money's worth on my receive preamp.  Without the preamp I can't hear a thing.
