Good Fringe Antenna  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I live in a dead zone between a number of repeaters. With a quarter wave antenna I can reach one repeater 20 miles away. With the RH770 I can reach two more repeaters at 48 and 52 miles distant. As far as I know this is the highest gain ht antenna on the market.

good gain on VHF and UHF, heavy for HT, little bit fragile.  Time owned: months
The antenna gets great reviews & test results over at the Yahoo group. 10dBi? on VHF !?

Company claims 3.0dBi(VHF) 5.5dBi(UHF) 20W,
which seems honest.
I have not run any SWR tests on it.

Since the antenna is a bit fragile, keep it closed while traveling. It should make a good base camp / fringe antenna for HT or for scanning.

Slap this antenna on a good ground plane and it ought to shine.

Mine came in a yellow package with Diamond lettering and a Harvest label/logo.

The Diamond RH771 might be more practical.
