I'm using a discone and experienced almost no fading whatsoever. The
signal sounded like it was coming from across the street. Amazing what
25W can do, even at that distance...

Also I noted that in my particular program (SDR#) the center of the
signal was actually at 145.804 (and didn't actually drift that much from
there, even with Doppler).
