So I took care of the weak signal problem. It had gotten weak enough so that you couldn't hear the ground controller on ZBW 134.0. Ground side is still weak but at least you can hear it again now.
So while I was out here (this feed originates at my parents place) I decided to try and improve reception even further by relocating the antenna to another spot on the roof so that I could raise it somewhat. This is a gated community and they have their rules...that's why I couldn't simply raise it where it was. It had to be moved somewhere else.
Well that planned totally failed...I moved the antenna and raised it about 5 feet higher than it was (I know, not much but I thought it would help a little) and the result was a total loss of the ground side transmission on 134.0.
Well, needless to say I was totally disappointed. All that work... So I ended up putting it all back the way it was before.
Oh well...at least you can hear the ground side again...
