My antenna arrived on friday and I was able to do some testing this weekend.
My initial reaction: wow!
I was able to pick up the YKZ ATIS (although with a lot of static and the squelch turned way up) from inside my house at ground level from about 10 statute miles away from the airport.
I headed down to the city to my condo and found that I could receive the YTZ ATIS with perfect clarity (being 1 mile away from the airport).
All of this was not possible with the antenna that came with my Bearcat BC2500XLT.
It was worth the price. If you are in Canada, give Durham Radio a call (www.durhamradio.com
) and let them know you'd like to special order this antenna. They will even ship it out to you.
