Update @ WA2ZKD
As part of my buzz and noise chase, I just switched to a Clifton Laboratories Z1501D. So far, things sound better. As it is a 3M whip, I have given up NVIS performance but have a though on how to fix that.
- Still running the whip but have done some ferrite and grounding work to minimize the ingress of the close TV and FM TX down the street. Will be trying a Pixel RF PRO-1 next.
