Thread-topic: [CRTech] NAB attendees, Antenna and transmitter?

Actually, you really should get a tower crew up there to lower the VSWR.  Had a Shively 6813 medium power single bay that we lowered from 1.08 to 1.00 and got several extra miles of fringe coverage out of the deal.  You might think what you have is OK, but likely it’ll be even better.

I installed a 4 bay Versa2une and was very pleasantly surprised with it's performance.  The VSWR isn't as good as I would have liked for it to be (about 1.22:1) but it exceed our coverage expectations.  We were going to reschedule the tower crew to sweep and re-tune the antenna but have decided to leave it as is due to the good coverage and low multi-path.
