Hi Robin,

The mast it's on isn't telescoped out as far as it can go.  I goofed when I installed it and didn't telescope one of the lower sections all the way before attaching it to the eave of the house. I think it will telescope another 10 ft. It's a 35 ft mast, if I remember right.

We could fabricate a mast extension to raise the G7 above the top of the current mast if you want.

Would moving your G7 to the mast of your tower be helpful?

That Hustler antenna is what I have.  I don't hear a lot of the folks you do Paul.   Don't think I'm at near the same elevation and I know there are some obstacles in most directions.  A lot of this area is sort of down in a bowl making it an uphill battle terrain wise no matter which direction you go.  I did hear most/all of the folks that checked in from Murfreesboro tonight. I almost always hear the fellow in Readyville.  Nothing farther south. I don't hear west or north very well.  Michael, KM4YRF?, is always very good. At times I can barely hear the fellow that does the net in KY.   So, I don't know how the Hustler would compare to the X700.  If you want to try comparing it some time, I can take it down, disassemble it and bring it over.  Don't know how much trouble it would be to install at your QTH.

I was wrong, this Hustler 2m has a 9.15 dbi gain vs the X700's 9.3 dbi gain (on 2 meters)
Hope to hear you on the air!!
