#4. What is a "no-ground plane antenna that is tip fed."
A little more information, please. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>In general, antennas can be base, center, or end(tip) fed. In the case of a vertical, a base fed antenna will connect the coax to the antenna at the base, a tip fed will connect the coax to the tip of the antenna.
The theory is that in situations where the antenna is partially blocked by air conditioners or is mounted on the side of a vehicle, a tip fed antenna will propagate better than a base fed antenna. Wish I knew how to support this. It is probably dependent on antenna construction and frequency. Hellllpppp. Just reporting what is advertised, which we know is always accurate.
