Great Antenna  Time owned: more than 12 months
Installed about one year ago, this antenna has been a great performer. Stainless steel screws and lock nuts are used to connect the elements, making a mechanically superior antenna that has weathered wind and salt air at my location.

Once assembled, the antenna tuned perfectly, first try; and is flat across both bands. On air reports have been impressive with some nice pile-ups from time to time.

Jay at Array Solutions, and Tom (owner of Optibeam) were always easy to work with and extremely helpful.
