A little good reading.:
After which you might want to sand the inside of the roof area where the nut washer etc make contact. The effect of the angle of the antenna will not be noticeable if the antenna is not grounded properly or if the receiver is operating above the RF limit point, other wise there is an important detectable difference, you may not be able to tell as I said when station received signal is above the automatic RF gain limit.
Follows is a useful quotes:
Antenna's fields are distorted by nearby objects (particularly metal ones). Avoid placing the antenna near a distorting object, to insure proper performance.
Because these antennas also have a vertical polarization component antennas that are mounted vertically will perform better than ones that are mounted horizontally.
Keep the antenna as far away as practical from sensitive circuitry such as A/D converters, clock signal traces, and other noise generators. Otherwise you may find that the signals couple onto the antenna coaxial cable or CRFM board. If this happens, these signals will
1. Be radiated by the receice signal and
2. Be conducted into the receiver, making it less sensitive to the desired control channel signals.
Use of connectors and interconnecting cable should be minimized. Each of these items has some RF loss associated with it. For cable runs longer than 5 feet, we recommend Belden RF cable type 9913 or better. Loss in the transmit chain allows less of the transmitter's power to get to the antenna to be radiated. Loss in the receive chain causes less of the received power to get from the antenna to the receiver circuitry for decoding. In fringe areas these additional tenths of dB may mean the difference between working and not working.
Do not paint the hole through which your antenna connects. Paint near the antenna hole or antenna connector hole will prevent good contact between the connector and the grounded case.
