Excellent antenna  Time owned: more than 12 months
Bought this when i was thinking of getting into some 23 cm activity, and was also getting tired of hand-crafting little dipoles or using portable antennas for 2m / 70cm.

This was some of the best money i've spent on an antenna.

It's light, and has survived all the miserable weather that Ottawa has seen in the last year. Excellent performance on receive and transmit.

It's light and easy to manoeuver and mount. I may get another one of these for portable use atop a painter's pole as a do a lot of mini-expedition/event sort of setups.

Diamond X-6000A used with Kenwood TS-2000X  Time owned: more than 12 months
This is overall a good antenna for use with the Kenwood TS-2000X model radio. It provides coverage on 2-Meters, 70-CM, and 23-CM. The SWR on all three bands is pretty good and equal overall. I will note that in the past, I owned a Diamond X-510, which in my opinion, is a much better performing antenna. The is not much 23-CM activity in the Philadelphia area any longer so I am considering going back to the Diamond X-510 and selling off the TS-2000X radio, but if you've got 23-CM activity in your area, they this is the setup for you.

Beautifylly made, great performer  Time owned: more than 12 months
This is a beautifully made antenna, no automotive style hose clamps here. Definetly not a throwaway antenna, this is built to last. The two sections go together with a gasket to keep water out. Mine has been up for three years now, with no problems at all. I can work 23 cm repeaters more than 15 miles away with 1 watt feeding through 50' of semi-rigid feed line. The antenna is only 25' above ground level. On 2 meters with 50 watts I can work repeaters 75 miles away eaisly. Remember, due to 23 cm capability, it has a 'N' connector. I reccommend this antenna highly.
