The truth about antennas

"The more metal you put high in the air, the better your signal will be!"

I obtained an old Solarcon I-Max 2000 which is not working anymore. I want to exchange the A-99 wrapped with Alu foil and extended by a lineair load antenna. This means I will not need the lineair load anymore as the I-Max 2000 is just the right length (7,1m) for my vertical. It's a project for this summer and it will not take too much time as it is just the exchange of 2 poles and some connections. I admit it will not ad that much. It's just is a fun experimentto work on. Just to be clear I only use the antenna as a support. I don't use the Solarcon system but my own with a CG3000 autotuner.
