good tri-band with 23cm  Time owned: more than 12 months
I got the GP-95 installed last night well after dark but was worth it to hear the 1.2ghz repeaters nearly full scale for the 1st time.
I got the comet tri-band GP-95 a few years back from DXE and had poor results with 76 feet of 9913F up 30ft. some 259 to n adapters.
So I switched to a 28ft run of Andrew Ldf4-50 flex line with no adapters and up 25ft ( right above the shack ) with much better results.
23cm requires very low loss cable ( think 1/2inch flex/hardline) and dont even think about 259 to 'N' adapters.
I am able to compare the GP-95 ( 4 feet off the roof line ) with my GP-15 up on the tower and compares very well on stations within 60 miles.
Local 23cm guys recommended the just over the shack install rather than the cable loss in a tower install.
