I hinted to this back at the end of January. I got a message from
Mike last month and he had S/N-001 on the air with excellent reports
into Europe and SWR curves as expected. I spoke to Matt last week and
they said they would be unveiling this at Visalia.
Wyatt forwarded me the following flyers today and I want to share
them with you. As I understand it, they are ready to take orders!
These antennas are rated for 80MPH and utilizes a 3" boom that tapers
down to a 2" boom to shed weight.
The 12-el comes in at 100# and the boom length of 45'.
The 11-el is 73# with a boom length of 37', which removes the back
element and a section of 3" boom. The plus is you can upgrade from
the 11 to the 12 at any time by buying the element and boom
section! Specs are the same for both antennas except for frequency
It looks like Mike and the guys at M2 came up with yet another TRUE PERFORMER!
