R: M2 Eggbeaters



Hello to the gang,
about the subject I've homemade a 70 cm replica of that antenna about 2
weeks ago.
After some test on mobile operation from my car I found that the antenna
works really well for elevation greater than 10 degree until overhead. Below
10 degree the perfomance degrade so that a 1/4 lambda whip mount on the car
roof works better.
Another pro is that the CP of Eggbeater makes QSB less pronounced over all
the pass.
Obviusly a LNA is mandatory ....
The test will be continued ....
