« on: February 25, 2017, 06:20:10 AM »
I'm installing this antenna on Saturday 2/25/2017. It will be for some of the Miami feeds. I'll post
more photos when i'm done.

 :-D yep it's a little on the large size; it's 7.5 feet long. It cost me in January 2017 225 Pounds ($289.33 then) and that included shipping. If I bought it today it
would have cost me less. I would guess it weighs around 5 to 10 pounds. I'm 25 miles away from the Miami Center RCAG and 10 miles from
Fort Lauderdale (FLL). I would say there has been probably a 6db improvement over the previous air band yagi I was using. Right  now I THINK
it's up around 35'.  It's reception is directional however it is picking up off the sides well enough for me. See this post for the company info and more pictures.
