We used to, now we use M2 436CP3 & 2MCP14 (further down the page)
The X-Quads from WiMo were fantastic antennas for the boom length,
but not quite the same as the full length M2's.

The gateway has been in operation 24/7 for close to 10 years now,
hopefully some of you will make use of it when you come to Toronto.
