GREAT ANTENNA WORKS GREAT.
Very good covertures
I don't know why anyone wouldn't give this antenna a five-star rating. There shouldn't be any doubt about its durability. Mine is 20 feet above the house. Another identical station- same radio (Midland MXT500) and antenna, is located 63 miles away, line-of-sight. We are able to talk on simplex. Granted, this 63 miles is max as the signal drifts in and out, but now you know. True story.
I have had this antenna for a little over 3 months and have it on a telescoping pole about 30 ft in the air. I am able to hit repeaters as far as 40 miles away with ease. I would give this 5 stars but since I havent had it very long I am a little concerned how it will hold up long term. My Ultimate goal will be to build a repeater using two antennas approximately 100 ft apart with two Identical antennas, with the transmission antenna about 100 ft up my ham radio tower. I will review the entire setup when it is completed.
This repeater is awesome . i had a bit of a hard time programing it because I am so new at this .but with help from my radio club and mygmrs.com I now have it working very well I first contract was 38 miles away .i some how got a short in my power cord . i e mailed them to see were I could purchase a new one .with in 24 hours I got a very nice return email .they sent me a replacement part I needed .i am very pleased with it and the great service I got .
As always tim
