Sounds like a prickly situation :-) Looking forward to testing out the improved vara version in combo with your higher antenna install.

Down for a short while while I move the antenna.  I thought it was going to be quick to move but the coax is tangled in the blackberry canes so it’s turning into an all out hand to hand battle.

Once I get the antenna sorted, I will be upgrading the station to VARA 4.0.1, which will not be backward compatible with the 3.x version.  So folks will need to update the VARA installation on their computers as well if they want to connect via VARA FM.  Packet should be unaffected.

The good news here is that when it’s all done the antenna will have moved from a stub mast that held it about 5 feet above ground to a overhead suspension that will hold it up at about 65 feet at the base.  So coverage should improve quite a bit.
