Its a  antenna made by "theantennaspecialist". 

Its weird how I came across this antenna, It was actually being sold on-line as a 2m ham radio antenna.  A friend bought this antenna and the SWR on it for ham was way off.  So we then hooked up a Antenna analyzer and its tuned best for 118-119.

The work I did the past weekend... Raised antenna and put guy ropes on it due to power lines on both sides of me.... Good thing is its fiberglass poles.
