    I have a Gizmotchy 3 element beam and a Jo Gunn Smoking Gun 2 element beam which one of these is the better beam as far as skip or local talking. I am putting it up on a 40 foot tower? I like how heavy duty built the Jo Gunn is but Gizmotchy is a 3 element. Their specs are pretty close.! Opinions please??

    First, do not believe the specs for either antenna. At most you are looking at 6dBi on the Joe Gunn, and 9dBi on the Gizmotchy.

    I wouldn't mess with either of those, but understand if that's all you got. If'n I was forced, I'd use the Gizmotchy.
