I just got this antenna for Fathers Day and WOW what an improvement on these bands ! I have been able to pick up a couple of things that my Diamond RH77CA wouldn't. I will be using this for railfaning for sure ! I have been able to pick up the local short line railroad a lot better with this. I noticed a lot more clarity on the SO and neighboring cities PD and FD as they are VHF. Does well on 800 MHz Motorola in Columbus, OH as well. Very well made antenna !!

DOES A NICE JOB
August 2, 2012

I put this antenna on a GRE PSR-310. Does a real nice job of pulling in Railroad and Marine traffic and does a respectable job on VHF low band and UHF band fire traffic. It does fine on a EDACS 800 system coming off a mountain less than five miles away. On a weather channel it has a five bar signal strength, same as a Diamond RH-77CA even though it is shorter. The BNC connection is shielded by the outer rubber coating which is a real nice feature. I give it five stars.
