Thursday KC0TPS net

Tried checking into the KC0TPS repeater/Net from Blair & Sullivan Ave and got a choppy signal. Surprised I got one at all. Just over the hill from the repeater’s range. Net closed before I had success. They heard my attempt to check in, however, I caught bits and pieces of them saying the signal was noisy and I needed to increase the power. Using an HT at 4-5 watts, ducky antenna tonight. Ok, so looks like I’ll need to fab a J-pole and put it up on the roof. I suspect that will connect well on my 5 watt HT. No doubt a mobile rig and the J-pole would work.
