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
Hello this is a excellent antenna the higher you can get it up in the air the better it picks up also the cutting chart is dead on point I cut mine at 465MHZ (L1) 16 13/16 (L2) 12 5/8 (L3) 14 5/16 & my SWR is a perfect 1.00 I would recommend this antenna to anyone once it's tuned it's perfect.

Received this as a gift. Set it up for a repeater antenna. I cut it just a bit long to 458 MHz. After setting it up, I was making good contacts, with better reported performance than my previous slim jim.
