That seems consistent with lots of multipathing. I'd recommend reading about it, if you are interested. The topic itself is a very complex and intriguing issue in wireless channels.

I have lots of multipath on band 2, but band 12 is not as bad. My multipathing was so bad, antennas 12 inches apart had 10x less signal more often than not.

Excellent information! Been playing with few home brew antennas trying to find best AT&T band for my area (lots of trees and tower about 4 miles away). Your info helps a lot, thank you.

Quick question:

"Location: My home, in the North East GA Mountains For reference, below is a screenshot"

Could you share what software / website you used to create the the screenshot that mapped the terrain? Looks very useful...

Thanks!

I used the Radio Mobile Website to do it: https://www.ve2dbe.com/english1.html

Be warned its not the most trivial website to use. If you want just a quick mapping of the terrain profile, you can use https://link.ui.com/
