Re: 4SQRP Kits recently built

My first guess is the counterpoise wire is too long. Based on your description it sounds like you built an Off-center Fed Dipole for 4.875 MHz. 
Try shortening your counterpoise to 3 feet and check it again. 

If you need more details, please contact me. I'll be happy to help when I'm not at work .
