I wouldn't own any of them personally. I'd hold out for Jay's Crusader beam!
The SE Quad has been well discussed and by most accounts is a very effective operator if built and tuned correctly, but the kit materials used leave a lot to be desired.
The Maco no longer slots their tubing and that is a negative, but for the most part is more durable than the SE Quad.
Jay’s antenna on the other hand will likely be as good as it gets in these regards, but operations have not been tested as best I know. I have heard rumors, but that is all thus far. I think one operator on this forum has one of Jay’s beams, but has thus far made no comments.
They will all have a problem with rotor support since they are so large. These are not projects for beginners or the faint of heart.
instead go with steppir 2 - 3 or 4 element beam
Yes, the SteppIr is an excellent antenna, but not optimized or recommended for CB use.
For less than half that price, you can buy a modified version of the M2 10M7 which is contest proven and well constructed.
my point is for people to use a good antenna..
people who know quality antenna reconise steppir advantages
ofcourse it is way to much for simple 11 meter use..
also the M2 antenna you mentioned is far better then the junk antennas typiclly mentioned..
it seems not enough people realise (or if they do they dont put it to practice)
that the anenna is likly the most importent part of ones system.
followed then by feedline-coax and then finally the radio
