    Are there any rules on how far apart two receiving antennas should be placed to minimise interference ?

    You CAN solder copper to aluminium, but I wouldn't bother... just use the design of ABCD567's "Six leg spider" , does exactly the same job - only neater !

    #2346 in this thread.


    If you want to use it outdoors, spray it with lacquer or mummify it with self amalgamating tape !

    Yeah well it holds for now, I just put it up the roof and time will tell whether it'll hold
    Before that one I was using a fairly ok cantenna and it was just giving a small performance increase compared to the coco.
    I'm beginning to think that the trees round me are having a greater disadvantage than I hoped.

    I ordered an amplifier and some extra cable to test with more height in the future.

    My question is where should i start measuring the 69mm for the legs?

    This is my situation:
