The QFH far out preforms my dis-cone and is giving very good results. I original had the antenna in my garden well away from the house. I decided to then pop a bracket on the back wall of the house. This as it turns out was quite a mistake as I now seem to get drop out in the images, this I think is due to the antenna being too close to my tv antenna and level with it.
I was fortunate to have materials left over from the build of the QFH so am currently am building a second QFH that I will place in the garden again. where the the original was.
please see this links for pic's of the first anntenna under construction.

Hi this blog is just sharing some of my interests in radio and weather satellites reception. I have currently been working on getting a little system running to receive and publish weather pictures to a web page, received from the NOAA Polar orbiting satellites. A full description of them can be found hear.
