Dual-band VHF/UHF antenna for Commercial & Amateur base station operation. Ideal use for use in Search & Rescue, Public Safety, Commercial and Amateur radio base station communications.
Which I think is the same antenna actually.
I’m trying to find one with a spread wide enough to cover 2m/frs and 70cm/gmrs. I’m using a jpole now. Does fine. Just looking. Might not do me any better. I dunno.
I dunno. I don’t know that I’ll really improve over what I have in place already. I’ve a tram vhf ground plane because I wasn’t planning on doing any 70cm. Now I’m playing with it so I made a jpole for a dual band. Both feed points are the same height and on 2m there’s some difference but not too much. However the jpole will work gmrs and 70 so now I have 2 up. It’s using coax that was for the other radio. But will a bought dual band be any better than the 3/8 all thread jpole?
That is simply the commercial version of the Diamond X50 2m/70cm antenna. I have one but I only tried it a short while about 15 feet high. It is going on the tower next year at about 70 feet with 1/2 inch LDF-4 heliax feedline. It should work well.
