First I want to say thank you to all that replied to my question. I got a real
education and some very helpful information.
1. It is hard for me to believe that the T-7 antenna has a gain of 6.2dbd. My
Hygain 4 element monobander 204BA is only rated at 6.0 dbd. So maybe I should
junk the 204BA and get a T-8?
2. From the comments, it looks like the T-7 will work in my tower space. It
will work about as good as a TA-33jr as for as gain and FB. This is about what
I want and expect. I will get the additions 17/12 meter bands which is a big
3. There were a lot of very good comments. But I do not have a bunch of money,
I don't live on a big farm, and I don't have a big tower. I just need a
replacement antenna for the Hygain DB10/15. One that will fit in the same spot.
Thanks again for your comments.
