IT IS TERRIFIC! Immediately pulled in two beacons which normally are at the noise level with PA1296-70-6AUT
John ordered our 23 cm 70 element ham radio antenna for testing. He had his 67 element Yagi from other manufacturer. He did compare 23 cm 70 elements vs 67 elements. How his measurements went?
Our 23 cm 70 elements PA1296-70-6AUT antenna vs 67 elements antenna
Properly packaged, it took about a couple of hours to unpack and assemble. Another hour to get in on the mast and IT IS TERRIFIC! Immediately pulled in two beacons which normally are at the noise level and, using an RF Explorer, traced a rough pattern which followed your published pattern for azimuth. But, most astounding, was the increase in ERP of a nominal 6 dB over the another producer 67 element Yagi beam your 70 antenna replaced. Not only strong and well built but performs like a champion.
With LMR600 and Preamp on tripod, your antenna looking toward Tucson Arizona some 140 miles South. Not shown is the station in a Ram Tradesman van which consists of a Q5 60 Watt amplifier driven by Kuhne 1296H transverter and a Kenwood TR751 transceiver.
Fabulous product, well packed and easy to assemble.
