tested on car roof and on asphalt ground this morning ..
overall height from ground using tripod alone was 5ft
overall height on the roof of the car was around 7.5ft (i shortened the tripod legs when on the roof)
at higher altitudes ... the ground and roof version performed about the same
but at lower heights the roof version seemed better marginally .. lower = 10-20ft weaving around small trees and lamp posts (in a cloudsfly .. hehehe)
i also noticed when i/plane fly over greens/grass/trees ... signal is much better than when over roads .. high metal content in the asphalt/tar road construction in my country ??
