Re: Elk antenna

I've been playing around with an Elk Antenna lately and have been very 
happy with it. While I could not find a way to test is vs. the Arrow in 
a completely controlled environment, in side-by-side very informal 
testing, the two antennas are quite good.

Eventually I'll mount the Elk on a mast with a cheap horizontal rotator 
and that will hopefully give me the pleasure of working satellites from 
my shack, especially in winter and foul weather.

I even plan to take that Elk on a trip overseas, as it has less parts to 
lose than the Arrow and size-wise, once taken apart it is virtually the 
same as the Elk.

BTW, the antenna on eBay looks a lot like an Elk antenna, but for the 
bottom part, the connector.
