Hi Iss Fans !
I am experiencing very weak signals on the 145.825, and I am very confused about it:
I am using a 5/8 vertical antenna with a SDRRTL2 receiver (altenatively an Albrecht portable scanner), which give me good results on terrestrial signals (I am regularly able to decode packet radio signals hundreds of kilometers away, so I don't think my equipment is in fault).
The problem is present with low, medium or high elevation angle !?
Do you have this kind of problem ?
What kind of antenna do you use ?
Thanks for your comments.
