Excellent 'PORTABLE' Antenna  Time owned: more than 12 months
For portable operation, this is an excellent choice. Breaks down into a lightweight, compact package for transport. This is not an antenna for a permanent installation. Gain and directivity seem to be good. I would purchase again.

No data on mast size accomodated  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
OK, this antenna works great BUT....
The manufacturer give NO data on the maximum mast size that the mounting bracket will accomodate. Cmon, if you mount this on a tower you have a 2 inch mast. Guess what??? the mount supplied will Not accomodate more than 1-3/4... How lame is that? Cmon only someone mounting it on a push up mast can use this antenna. I was very, very dissapointed...
At least print the specs on your website so we know before we buy one and then have to fabricate our own mounting plate...
gimme a break,

2m surprise  Time owned: more than 12 months
The antenna is well designed but falls short in the thin aluminum material choice. The truth is I live close to the ocean, and the aluminum, threaded screws, boom, and endcaps have turned to powder. Even the mast to boom clamp has fixed the wing nuts. All in 12 months. If you purchase, be sure to to avoid a permanent location and discuss with the manufacturer ways of prolonging the paper thin elements, clamps, nuts, threads and the list goes on.

A Nice Antenna  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
I purchased the 146-4 portable antenna from Arrow Antennas, for SSB weak signal work in the field. This is one of four antennas I have purchased from Arrow and it proved to be as excellent in quality and workmanship as any of the other Arrow antennas I have. Until I was able to upgrade to a more permanent antenna installation, I mounted this antenna and used it daily. The antenna performs flawlessly, with signals previously not discernible or at noise level, instantly recognizable with an increase of 2-3 S units. Every station I regularly work in my early morning SSB weak signal net commented on the improved signal. The antenna breaks down into a very small package for portable/back country use. This is a top quality product that will be serviceable for a long time. The machining is precise and the materials top notch. Tim, the owner of Arrow Antenna is pleasant and immediately responsive to any inquiry. I will continue to use Arrow Antenna products wherever I find need of an affordable, high quality antenna in the VHF/UHF spectrum.
