Re: Wimo antenna's



Hi Adam,

I'm using the 70cm X-Quad with good success for L-Band uplink. The antenna
is very handy and from good mechanical quality. To believe in the 12.8 dB
gain in an different question, but with 15W on the feed point my signal is
just ok (could be 3dB more) even at the apogee at low squint angle.

CP seems to be ok, QSB is rather low compared with other kind of antennas.

To make a long story short I can really recommend this antenna if are
looking for a small and solid antenna.

73, Helmut - DL8DAK

... meet you on AO40
