Hi,

Just browsing the Thunderpole shop at the homebase antenna's and see the Sirio Balcony. Are the anygood ? I wouldn't get away with an 18ft+ antenna ouside but rekon I could mount the 27W outside just under the sofet, would it work well ? I think the 27A would be too long :roll: .

Thanks.

sirio balcony see to give short range you could try the dv27 with home built ground plane fixed to the soft use it pointing down and run the ground along the sofit

if you mount the dv27 on a bracket useing a dv mount hen run 9ft of cable from the base of the bracket along the sofit you should be able tol swr the antenna ok
and also get the dv as vertical as you can
