    Decided to make a modification: Pulled the screwdriver off the second antenna (performs like crap) and put up a 2m loop and a 220 beam:

    I assume... the propagation distance was not long enough to indicate sporadic e.

    There were some links on APRS up to 400mi. But I'd expect over 1000mi for sporadic e.

    Most of the digipeaters I rely on to observe propagation are large tower affairs with a lot of gain. So if I'm seeing 200 miles- I can usually get into Chicago.
