A proper answer to your question must consider WHICH "Super Stationmaster"
antenna you are comparing to the DB616. If the choice was between the DB616
and the PD220-2 Super Stationmaster, I would choose the DB616. But, if the
choice was between the DB616 and the PD620-2 Super Stationmaster, I would
choose the PD620-2.
The Celwave catalog identifies both the PD220 and the PD620 series antennas as
"Super Stationmaster" but notes that the PD620 series is an "extra-rugged"
version of the PD220. Among the differences are a 3.5 inch base diameter
versus 2.75 inches, and the fiberglass radome is thicker, larger, and much
stronger. It's also VERY expensive! Choose wisely...
