8DBi gain across the entire VHF High band.

Antenna Input Impedance 50-75 Ohms

Front to Back Ratio  25 to 30 DB across the band.

These values were verified using both computer aided modeling and real world measurements made at my

SWR,  is 1.5 to 1 across 144 MHz to 175 MHz

My first impression of the antenna was how well it was constructed. Due to the inexpensive price, I was skeptical about the quality I would receive.
I was pleasantly surprised. The antenna was very easy to assemble, it took about 15 minutes.

We are using the antenna to receive NOAA weather radio for our TV station. We have a digital sub-channel that displays our weather radar 24/7 with NOAA audio.

We were using a quarter wave whip antenna on the receiver, and weren’t happy with the reliability. With the beam antenna installed, we now have a -63dBm received signal level. The NOAA
audio is now very clean.
Thanks for a great antenna.
