Thanks for the interesting report.
Without the wire mesh, the symbol rate was Zero. With the wire mesh it went to 100%.
WOW! Very impressive test; sounds promising.

Which way was the antenna aimed, and which side of the antenna for the mesh?

I'm trying to figure out if you were using a signal coming over the mountain from SSE or a signal from the east for reception.

I'm wondering how close the mesh can be to the antenna without detuning it.

I don't want the antenna to blow all the way to Kansas.
Ha Ha! Yes, you don't want to convert it into a kite.

Sounds like a compromise. Closer spacing of the rods or wires is more effective, but it increases the wind load.
If you can not measure it, you can not improve it.
