    This looks like a horizontal beam with 5 director elements and 1 reflector. The one I saw was on a Honda Civic, but this picture from their website looks just like it.
    Snake oil or fully functional? Depending on the configuration....$300-$900!

    If I didn't know better I would say you are just trolling. I thought you have been around long enough to have seen the great Star Gun bullshit debates here. :)

    Get a copy of that antenna and send it to me, I would love to model that so called antenna some time, but I have no intention of actually paying for it...

    i tried once to look up some of the things put on antennas to supposed to make them get out better but didnt come up with anything,,, i can remember the wire loop in the center of antenna and the so called ground plane,,,,i wish there was a list some where so we could let ones know they are snake oil and ripoffs,,,,

    The maker/seller of that contraption knows he can never overestimate the stupidity of anyone who would buy it. There's a CB'er in my area I see every now and then with one of those things on top of a old Chevy van. I can only shake my head when he drives by. I guess if you believe it works then it does.

    What makes you think I didn't already know that? Actually, there are other threads on this forum from the past where I tell people the exact same thing. I am curious by nature, and even though I have known for years this antenna was nothing but snake oil doesn't mean I wouldn't want to model it some day for kicks...

    The antenna certainly looked absurd on a late model Honda Civic.

    Went to the site and at the very top is the slogan. "the sport of log periodics...not theory"......wow...apparently not a sport I know anything about and OBVIOUSLY lacking theory.
