Excellent  Time owned: more than 12 months
This dual band portable J-Pole performs very well. I can hit all the local repeaters (I live in a basement apartment) that interest me. It is available with a BNC, PL or SMA connector for $24.95 Canadian dollars plus the cost of mailing.

Robert Morton (VE3BFM), the owner of Maple Leaf Communications makes high quality antennas at reasonable prices. I recently bought his 1/4 wave 70cm whip which also performs well. I have no financial interest in Maple Leaf Communications!

Excellent Portable Antenna  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
This is ideal for amateurs who need a compact (roll up) travel antenna. I pack this in my carry-on baggage.

I have made contacts on both 2m and 70cm. This antenna at least doubles the contact range of my 5w hand held radio as compared to the rubber antenna.

Very good value, and prompt delivery service.
