    Hello TonyV 225:

    Maybe you could put the Super Scanner up say 30 to 40 feet away from the A99, and do a comparison test.

    I'll put money the Super Scanner will work better than the A99. But not blow it away in a significant comparison test.

    I have used the older Scanner Antenna, and it was really neat to be able to quickly electronically switch the antennas direction, with just a switch. Works good on skip and local station.

    The installation is not as simple as a A99 Antenna is. It will need to put on a Heavy duty Push Up or tower.

    I have seen many Super Scanner Antennas installed with metal Guy Wires going inbtween the 3 elements, and that will not work. That will throw off the antennas pattern. Its necessary to guy wire the mast and right at the bottom of the antenna, because the antenna is heavier than the norm. So I suggest you use the good Black UV resistance rope sold at HRO or AES. This works great while NOT effecting the antennas performance.

    Might me a neat project to work on in the spare time.

    I had 2 of these and sold 1 I have one here yet I never really ran them but I would like to. I have 3 extra control boxes so Im set in the department lol.. I have been running Antron 99s for about15 or 16 years now and was thinking if this Superscanner works better up on my tower I would put it up. What are you suggestions on this???? I need to know about wondering RF and receiving transmitting and band width and most imprtant reliability. If this would work out for me I would wanna try a 103c a jo gunn or something like that later on . I would have to stay in the smaller beam range because of space. I have a rotar here and thought about sticking it under that Superscanner which may be useless but I have heard people have done it. I have also heard from people that the Superscanner would blow this antron 99 away in hearing and transmit any advice from people out here that I trust would be great. Thanks Tony
