Setup advice for Weingard HD6010 for FM
I will likely add in a HD tuner but for now I'm trying to setup this antenna for my Yamaha TX-1000 tuner for FM reception. I'm using an existing mast attached to my chimney, the antenna is about 8' above the asphalt shingle roof but needs to aim down the long axis of the roof.....about 60' of roof.
The antenna lead is about 80' of RG6 into the tuner using a coax to PAL connector which the TX-1000 uses for the 75 OHM input.
Most of the stations are 15 to 30 miles away, and I can get the signal strength to 20-30 on the meter which is almost static free...above 40 would be great. I don't know how the Yamaha signal strength meter correlates to actual signal strength but that's what I have to work with.
I have the antenna aimed per the instructions and have turned it a little but I can't seem to get that perfect or high-strength signal.
Any thoughts or ideas?
