The old adage about "getting what you've paid for", applies here IN SPADES! I wish it worked, I wish it ws built solidly. I wish it didn't kick down my Transceiver, I wish the SWR profile wasn't abysmal.... sigh Put the price of this antenna into a jar, and save it towards a genuine antenna, that works, but will cost more! This junk is the "Little Red Engine That Could" of the antenna world!
this antenna can be tune just open and make 1/3 of a cut to each rod to the resonate freq it works fine 1.0 70cm 1.4 2m im happy with it.
SWR above 2.5:1 across the entire 70cm band and as high as 2.5:1 across the 2 meter band making my radio select 50% power due to SWR.
This antenna seems to work ok. Although my jPole still seems to work better. Both are installed in the attic and I was hoping to replace the jPole with this antenna. The problem with both antennas is that while they both work fine on 2m the 70cm band does not really cover the entire band. For this antenna it seems resonant around 431 mhz when I need it to be around 448. So far have not been able to find an easy way to tune it even asked the manufacturer but no response. Other than that works ok
