2M Antenna for roof?
Been trying to get into the NTS net on 145.310 for the last couple weeks, but they are just receiving static. I'm just using my FT-2900R and an N9TAX Slim Jim on a painter's pole in the back yard.
I'm wondering if a rooftop antenna will help me reach out better. If so, what would you guys recommend? I don't have any stupid HOA rules or anything, so I can put whatever I want up there. One of my neighbors has a pretty funky looking antenna, but I haven't been able to talk to him to see if it's a ham antenna or something else.
Maybe I should mount a Slim Jim on the roof?
