Single best purchase I have made in a long time. This antenna works wonders on 800Mhz trunked digital systems. I was using an RS discone and it offered dismal performance. I live in the suburbs of Phoenix and the Regional Wireless System would not even be detected by the RS discone antenna. With this antenna the signal is crystal clear with no hint of fading or digital distortion. If you scan 800Mhz digital trunked systems this is the best investment you can make. I recommend using low loss coax it's worth the extra $$.

My first yagi
June 25, 2012
from Sacramento, CA United States
Well gotta admit didn't expect much from this antenna but holy smokes this thing works killer. All my 800mhz trunking is rock solid, already looking into a VHF yagi and some rotators. Coming from RS discones, and that other RS antenna- no comparison. Gotta also say I switched to LMR400DB@60', and the temporary mount is 1' off the front porch so can't wait till this thing is fully mounted on the chimney mount. Why'd I wait so long to try this? I also found my reception better than the Radio Reference Live feed for my area.
