Amazing really  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Hi all, this is an early review for a wonderful antenna, after JAN 2013 floods resulting in the loss of all gear, I decided to condense all antennas from 7Mhz thru 50Mhz to a ULTRABEAM UB-50, I was a little worried the size of the antenna would be too large for my tower, the quality of the materials really have to be seen to be belived, to be honest, it has been a long time since I have seen any quality like this hardware, surprised is just one word for it, goes together like a hand in a glove, wonderful engineering, I put the antenna together using TEF-GEL, the dynamic motors that drive the tape are precise the controller is very easy to use, even for a first time Dynamic antenna user, the whole experience is a wonderful moral booster for a ham losing interest in the hobby, I am sure it will give me a new lease of life,
the actual performance of the antenna, 6m thru 20mtrs is exact as a FULL SIZE beam for the mentioned bands, no traps, no coils, just a resonant length of copper tape required for each frequency, what really surprised me was the performance results on 40/30M, quite astounding really, given I do not have it 20mtrs above ground, max height here is 12.5Mtrs, with still a wonderful result on the 2 low bands,
one run of DXE MAX-400 Direct bury to the shack, and quite a few other antennas removed from the skyline, all in all a great choice for a older type ham, to simplify the station,
great service in VK, from Carsten VK4OA, of RFSOLUTIONS in Brisbane.
worth look guys,
Cheers
Dennis VK4SX
