Having just finished reading the pdf that Heath linked to -- it does contain
a lot of useful suggestions.
I've also noticed that of the 3 "rabbit" antenna's I have (never throw
anything away if there is room .... ) - the crappiest, oldest looking set
appears to function the best. My assumption is that the area I'm in is
adequately covered - anything else is too much.
