turbogrill Posted June 1, 2017 Report Share Posted June 1, 2017 Hi I am looking to upgrade our antennas hoping to get better reception. We have buafeng 4watt radios. I don't think they are the issue. 1. We already have a roof antenna but it has a very long cable to the radio, is this an issue? 2. Could the cable to the roof antenna be of low quality? It looks much thinner then the typical TV coax cables. 3. The pit radio antenna came with the radio and its pretty short and I assume it was made for both VHF and Uhf. Would a dedicated Uhf antenna help? Is 5/8 better than 1/4? What should I get? 4. Does power matter? I tired understanding the theory about antennas, seems complicated. Smith charts do look cool...
