Relocated Satellite Array

I moved the satellite array from the tripod in the center of the backyard, to a pole closer to the house. Doing so gives about 5 degrees better view towards the horizons. Going clockwise from the North, the antennas can see down to around 15 degrees; northeast, 10; east, 7; southeast, 2; south, 4; southwest, 10; west, 1; and northwest, 10 degrees. Much better than previous!! The antenna array has the ARR SP432VDG and SP144VDG preamplifiers in the junction box, and is fed with 75 feet of LMR-600 coax for UHF and LMR-400 coax for VHF.
