Kidlettes intervened. I'll try again in a couple of weeks (out of town next week).

I hit all the simplex and repeaters I could remember on the way home last night...nothing...finally heard a little on 145.145 when I got home. On the way to work I kept trying for a radio check on 145.145 but never got a reply, even when there were definitely people there...and I checked I was at full power, could hear just fine.....

I was scanning repeaters last night and never heard him either. I didn't hear the 146.460 calls, but because I sit in a radio hole w.r.t Broomfield I never hear them anyway. I need to get an antenna up on the outside of the house one of these years.

I've been wanting to make an antenna and set up a base station as well. I usually get great reception up here, even with my mag mount and mobile in the driveway. Homebrew J-Pole building party maybe?

I'm down, I was thinking of just a plain old 1/2 monopole. Basically a copper or aluminum tubing version of the homebrew mobile that W0IIN has helped make.
