A great system!  Time owned: more than 12 months

The 7-element 440 yagi is included in the 437-10 satellite antenna I bought.
It performs extremely well with almost no power.
With the purchase of one extra element and a 4-element boom with the 437-10 you can make a 4-element 2M yagi.
I use the roll-up case and use 1-piece booms because I don't backpack.
I'm in motels a lot and if the local repeater is 2M or 440 I've got it covered.
As I mentioned in my review of the 3-element 2-meter yagi(also included in the 437-10) the duplexer built into the handle end of the 437-10 can be extracted and re-installed in a few few seconds as needed.
I mentioned also that the machine work is impeccable.
One question I cannot answer is how Mr. Lowe can sell it for such a low price.

Conclusion:One of the absolute best buys in 2M-440.

Great Yagi  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Only had this but a couple of days, thats quite long enough to have me convinced that this is exactly what I have been looking for as far as a 70CM directional beam goes. I have looked around at
others and have found this to be the best choice based on others, price and performance. This works great for the sattelites and pulls the signal's in great. You can't go wrong with an Arrow. Do yourself a favour next time your looking for a good yagi, skip the rest and go with an Arrow.

Simply outstanding  Time owned: more than 12 months
We picked up a used Arrow 440-7 Portable Antenna recently in a package deal.... they are called Arrow antennas because they are made from aluminum arrow shafts that have had threaded inserts installed in them. This is a very lightweight 7 element yagi that can be broken down into component parts in a couple of minutes. It is outstanding for rocket tracking, RDFing, and of course FOX HUNTING. We use ours with an old Yaesu UHF FM handy talky and BEELINE foxhunting transmitter. Tons of fun and a great antenna. Highly recommended. Unfortunately, they do not ship outside of the USA at the present time... so you are stuck with finding one in stock at their recommended 'dealer' or having it shipped to a U.S. address for forwarding. It is worth the effort, but I am hoping they will change their minds and start shipping overseas.

superb  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
I have used an Arrow 2m 3-element beam for DFing power line noise, and it worked well. However, the 7-element 440 MHz verion is simply superb at finding offending poles. With a receiver on 70cm AM or SSB (I use a Yaesu FT-50 on AM), it is quite easy to find the source of power line noise.

It has also been used to make satellite contacts, and it pulls in signals from the birds very well.

Well-built, simple, and very functional.
