I have created a three axis antenna for my HF and UHF rigs. The UHF is a vertical J-Pole that works very nice. The other two are HF antennas made from MFJ-347 Double Pipe Mounts. These units allow me to mount two mobile whips as a horizontal dipole. One set are Lakewood Hamstick's 9175 (75/80 Meter) and the other are 9140 (40 Meter) mounted 90°'s to each other. I am driving them with a Kenwood TS-440S at full power setting (100W give or take). I use an MFJ Versa Tuner II (MFJ-941D). Situation: I was making contacts over 1500 miles and getting reports of 59 in the evening hours. One gentleman told me he was driving a new Cushcraft antenna with 830 watts. I gave his signal a 47 report. Another was a comparable situation. Question: How is it that I can bang out such a good signal but cannot receive very well at all? Is there anything I can do about it? I don't have a port for a beverage antenna so I am stuck. Is the signal directional? All input and knowledge greatly appreciated.
