or get bought out?
mmmmm, guess not. My link wasn't working. Thanks.
I have been looking at two element quads. Cubex two element says it has a 75 ohm match. Can this be used with coax?
Yes. 75 ohms on a 50 ohm system is a 1.5 to 1 SWR match, and that is well within acceptable norms.
Mudfoot: I think the VHF/UHF quads use a 75 ohm matching stub and then can be changed to 50 ohm coax...or can stick with 75 ohm coax all the way...I chat with and op that has a 6N2 version and it rocks on 2m...
All the Best
And yes, their web home page changed address after TENNADYNE now owns them.
Still same products and service from what I noticed.
I have this one - http://www.cubexquads.com/uhf_vhf.htm its still in the box.
My wife's cousin just got his ticket. He lives 18 crow miles, but were in Southeast Ohio and the rolling hills get us. I can just barely hear a scratch when he keys up. I was thinking of putting up one of the "end mast" mount quads and leave it pointed his way. I'm thinking it just might work. I got plenty of 75 ohm cable left over from a scanner install.
He's got me interested in 2 meters again. Feels good to Elmer again.
Yep, that's the one I'm looking at. Well, the 2 meter version, anyhow. Although, the dual band capability has potential as well.
