    It looks similar to Satellite Radio or Cell phone antennas made for UHF. Possibly a good compromise antenna for 2 and 440 for the local repeaters, but I wouldn’t expect much on 20. When a manufacture states “less receiver noise”, it usually equates to low sensitivity. My dummy load also has very low receiver noise.

    5 star reviews:whistle::LOL:...
    I often wonder what these guys must have used for antennas before, that they rate those antennas so well(screen door on submarine!:rolleyes:)
    All the Best

    Exactly Gary. A G5RV at 30 feet for all band HF and a J-pole for 2m. What more do you need. o_O
