Re: Low CCQ. Reasons and any suggested fixes for customer

I have LOS to tower. Nothing is in the way. Tower is omnidiretional; my radio is directional.

Height of antenna on my end is about 15 feet.

You need better than line of sight. You also need a clear fresnel zone. A 900MHz signal requires a larger fresnel zone than a higher frequency. You may want to try a higher elevation.

Any suggestion as to a height? We're not talking hundreds of feet are we?
