Needs a redesign  Time owned: more than 12 months
Hi all,

I have bought this antenna 3 years ago.

The construction of the antenna is very cheap.
Simple aluminum brackets to mount the elements to the round boom..

The boom is the most worst of the whole antenna.
The holes drilled for mounting the elements where not drilled at 90 degrees! H/V mismatched a degree or 5.

The aluminum of the antenna will oxidate very fast.
Also some mounting hardware, where not made Stainless steel.

Performance of the antenna is good.
I did not used it for DX, only for satellite communications.
But did a nice job there.

I have sold the antenna when moving to another QTH.

Also look at the review of my:
WIMO WX214 2x7el 2m Crossed Yagi

Same review..
