Re: Low CCQ. Reasons and any suggested fixes for customer
Short answer, I don't think there's any easy fixes for your problem. Maybe someone else more versed in
radio theory can explain better, but some basic stuff off the top of my head :
- 7 miles to tower : this line of sight? Do you know if the antennas being used are directional or omnidirectional?
- transmitting on the 2Ghz frequency : rule of thumb for radio waves is the higher the frequency, the shorter
the distance they can transmit. Also, higher frequencies are more sensitive to interference from things like solid
objects and water vapor -- guess why microwave ovens are so good at heating up water?
Based on your info so far, its not a technical issue but just an issue of plain old radio physics.
