Super Great Antenna  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
I was interested in trying the Hustler Spirit and sent an email to Hustler in Texas. Missy replied to me in a very friendly email to contact R&L Electronics and she provided the link to do so. I ended up phoning R&L and placing my order with credit card. They said there could be a wait as long as 6 weeks as each antenna is custom made.
The antenna I ordered is 14.5 long in total. It has 9db gain or 11dbi.
I installed the Hustler Spirit antenna about 6 months ago. I am using it for my 440 repeater.
This antenna is built heavy duty and installation on the tower was a breeze. This antenna gave me the lowest swr of any commercial antenna I have used at 1:1.
The performance of this antenna is amazing. It fills in holes that other commercial antennas could not. I have better coverage area with the Hustler then I did using brand name commercial antennas.
The other plus in buying Hustler is their product is made in the USA.
For the discerning repeater owner, get yourself a Hustler Spirit antenna and you will never look back.
