I have the little brother to this guy on my roof. Works well. I use about 35' of RG-8 to feed mine.
DIAMOND X50A DUALBAND BASE/REPEATER ANTENNA - $60 (Denver)
I have a DIAMOND X50A DUAL BAND BASE/REPEATER Antenna in excellent condition for sale. It has been in my attic for the last 15 years and shows no weathering.
It comes with all mounting hardware and has low SWR on both VHF and UHF ham bands. It can be used as a base or repeater antenna on VHF, UHF or both bands simultaneously.
It sells for $99.95 and I am asking $60 as I no longer have any radio equipment that would use it.
