First Impressions  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I've just purchased this antenna. I was looking for a V-UHF portable beamer to have some SSB-fun from the hills around Milano, Italy.

Easy to assembly, easy to tune. It comes wery well manufactured and looks like that can survive to many assembly/disassembly processes.
Elements are in steel and very well done.

This antenna, even mounted, fits easily inside the car trunk.

Range: 144-146 MHz 420-430 MHz
Gain: 9.5 dBi (144 MHz) 11.15 dBi (432 MHz)
F/R ratio: 12 dB
Maximum rated power: 50W FM.

Performances looks more than acceptable but I would like to test it more accurately to better understand this antenna.

This antenna require a non-conductive mast.

About the price: it's not a cheap antenna, definitely. But I'm sure that I'll have years of trouble-free enjoyment on the field.
