Hi All,
Just finished the mod on my IC-3200a to move the TX/RX down to 430-440 MHz.
Still need to round up some coax for the antenna but almost ready to start attempting to receive some of the FM birds.
Not sure which antenna I'm going to use but have a CC424b and a KLM crosspol antennas available. The KLM antenna was given to me so have no idea if it is working OK . The CC should be OK. I also will not have a preamp.
Which satellite has the strongest signal and would be the best to begin monitoring the FM birds?
Thanks in advance,
