SG7900 (big dual band): 1.1
diamond 'slimgainer' (not sure the PN, but it's a dual band): 1.7-1.8

Here's what I did...

drilled a hole in the Gamiviti rack, installed the UHF mount and tested the antennas. it was that grounding isssue - I previously had just a wire, no braid. so attaching to the rack did the trick!!


Sweet action. Your radio is much happier now
