No worries about inactivity. When he posted, the thread came back to the top.
Because of the location of Escondido relative to the broadcast towers in the SD area, it' usually necessary to do some customization, usually involving the VHF reception element's aim relative to the UHF portion of the antenna. Also, since your terrain path to La Jolla is much more severe that the path to Mt San Miguel and Tijuana, it's often necessary to be far more patient in selecting the height and location of the simple VHF dipole so it doesn't end up in a weakened diffraction layer. Also, if you're using a cheap amplifier in the system, adding an FM trap to its input is highly recommended as the FM stations from Mt San Miguel will be booming in at very high levels relative to the terrain-impaired VHF 8 & 10 signals.
Depending on the age of the C2V you have, it will either have the VHF element fastened to a vertical reflector support (older version) or, if newer, clipped onto the reflector. The version you have will dictate the mechanical steps necessary,
The end result is that the VHF element must be physically disconnected from the reflector, then, using some sort of mast extension (depends on version mostly), raised above the reflector, then rotated about 45° clockwise as viewed from above so it's perpendicular to a line in the direction of the La Jolla. For the 40" J-mount, a suitable length of 1" gray PVC from your local home center is a good start. It's lightweight, fairly rigid, and easy to work with. It will drop right down inside the tube of the 40" mount, is easy to cut to length, and a simple sheet metal screw or two through the tube's bolt holes will keep it from further rotation. For the 20" CJ mount, either use 1/2" gray PVC tubing for an inside the tube extension or 1" if you want to slip it over the metal tube. The gray PVC is strong enough so that the lightweight VHF module can be raised and re-positioned as needed. Do not remount the whole antenna on the extension, you risk equipment or building damage from having that extra wind load applied to something that wasn't meant for it.
You may have to step up to a much larger dedicated VHF antenna aimed at La Jolla as the simple VHF dipole does have its limitations. But, since you already have it, it's work experimenting with.
