Excellent Antenna  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
I picked up a Directive Systems DSEJX5-50 5 element beam and it works like a champ. Well built and easy to assemble and install.

I can't say enough great things about the performance of this beam. It has opened up the world of 6 meter meteor scatter and I am having a ball.

My only complaint is that I don't have two of them stacked side by side. :)

Very Heavy Duty  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
I have owned this antenna for 6 months. It is very strong, built like a tank. The elements are 5/8" center tubes with 1/2" tube tips. The antenna is mounted on my tower at 40 feet. I have worked the Caribbean and Central America as well as around the country. I have experienced no detuning due to snow or rain. In January the antenna had about an inch of snow and the swr was still 1:1. Assembly is straight forward. If you live in a place like southern California or Arizona you probably don't need an antenna this heavy duty. Assembling the antenna is straight forward. This is best 5 element 6 meter beam around for permanent tower mounting.
