excellent product  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
after using arrow 144-4s for 10 plus years with solid performance,it came time to review my irlp node station antenna...the diamond x-50. although i rate it as a great performer too,the swr is at 2.0 for my 440 irlp freq,i opted to look for something with more gain,and pinpoint accuracy,and figured with all the beams out there,which to buy?? i looked at cush,diamond,etc,etc,then figured we would give this uhf arrow a try.. it arrived 4 days later,and i set the gamma with the swr. 1.2/1 on 446.200. no sweat. 15 mins all together. up on the tower with new rg213 and ......hey .wowzers. a whole 2-3 s units more gain vs the verticle.. i use a a/b switch on my irlp node,and the output is stronger along with simplex testing on the echo reflector... im happy,and the antenna is very well built vs others..

Excellent !!  Time owned: more than 12 months
Excellent quality. As close to commercial quality as you can get. We've had one of these little beams in service for well over two years as a repeater link antenna. Absolutley ZERO issues with it. It's up at 125' AGL, fed with 7/8 heliax. SWR after adjusting the gamma match was nill. The 25w Motorola Maxtrac link radio has no trouble linking to the next repeater 75 miles away with this antenna. Very pleased & for the price/quality ratio, these can't be beat.
