Reviews Summary for M2 7&10-30 LP8 125 MPH Survivor Series
M2 7&10-30 LP8 125 MPH Survivor Series Reviews: 1 Average rating: 5.0/5 MSRP: $3699
Description: This special "skip frequency" hybrid log periodic is part of our rugged SURVIVOR SERIES of logs and Yagis. Aside from the fact that it will survive the worst that Mother Nature can do, it is a versatile performer. Commercial and government users need frequency agility and this antenna provides immense bandwidth and performance for the cost. For the amateur radio operator it covers SEVEN Amateur Bands with high efficiency and no traps! Machined aluminum element to boom clamps and solid fiberglass rod center insulators are just a few of the unique structural features in this remarkable antenna.

The 7&10-30LP8-125 is a single, economical antenna system that matches up with today’s modern solid state equipment and maintains performance from band edge to band edge. Low wind load and less weight put less demands on the rotator and tower structures.

Maritime, Government, Commercial, MARS, Scientific and Amateur users are finding the 7&10-30LP8-125 SURVIVOR reliably fills a variety of communication requirements. When properly installed at 65 feet or higher this eight element antenna is a world wide, world-class performer. Solid electrical and structural design will maintain communications when other antennas have long since faded into the noise.**Subtract 2.14 from dBi for dBd**
Product is in production.

Built like a tank!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I just put this antenna on my tower last week. It replaced the 100 MPH version of this exact antenna which was damaged in an ice storm this past winter. The 40 meter element on the 100 MPH version does not do well in heavy icing and high winds, as I had two instances over a 5 year period that the 100MPH version suffered damage to the 40M element. First time it was bent, the second time it actually snapped in half. (We had 75+ MPH winds with 3/8"+ of ice.) The 125MPH version is built much more ruggedly, particularly in the 40M element. There are some sections of the 40M element that are actually 4 tubes within the tube. It will take a little longer to build than the 100 MPH version, but in my opinion is not significantly more difficult to build than the 100 MPH version. In my case, I do not want to hire the tower guy to come back any more than I have to so I want an antenna that is going to last in the New England weather for a long time. I think this one will, and I will update this review over time and let you know.
