remember that most coax cable is only shielded 95%, so could be how your signal is getting out
inducing ground currents can do quite well for local reception of your radio signal, there are antennas that specialize in that
when you say "a 40 watt antenna", what kind of antenna is it ?
might want to try a dipole antenna up on a mast or something that is well known as far as how well it works to see how well your setup is working
also, what is the polarization of your transmit and receive antenna ?
they should be the same to work well.
most commercial radio stations and cell phone towers use circular polarization so that any straight wire antenna works at about any angle, you loose some signal that way, but you also never loose the signal from the wrong angle
