Excellent  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
On 3-16-11, I received the AO-432 antenna and installed it in my attic on a section of PVC pipe. Using an IC-910H radio, I received the Mode U UHF CW beacons on 3 satellites as they passed over the U.S. East Coast: O-55, O-58, and Swiss Cube. While this antenna is small in size, it did really well "right out of the box."*

The customer service at Par Electronics is as excellent as their antennas. Dale responds quickly to emails and inquiries.

great antenna!  Time owned: more than 12 months
I have an OA-432 Par Omniangle that I used portable during a couple of VHF/UHF contests with my FT-100D. I was very impressed with the performance of the antenna, and how easy it was to set up and tune. The quality of the materials was also excellent. I also have an OA-50 and an OA-144 that I use regularly with great results.

Smokin!  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
Fills the bill for a horizontal omni and does a whole lot more. Worked FO-29 and AO-51 nicely with my stacked pair to listen on the downlink. Nicely engineered, well worth the money....Thanks Par!
