great product  Time owned: more than 12 months
The nice thing about Pete's small Cross Boom Dual Band 2 Meter/ 70CM Satellite Yagi is one that it works very well I have had it up for over a Year now and it is still going strong. I have found it easy to assemble and take apart for the trip back and forth between the 2 QTH's.. At this time I am just using a standard rotor to point it. I bent the mast it is mounted to so the beam points up at about 15 degrees seems to work well as I have made several thousand contacts using this system on both the FM and SSB birds. It is small you can even turn it with a radio shack rotor.
