Hi Dave!

I have both the 2m & 70cm X-Quads wired RHCP with the factory harness on a
fixed EL rotator and am extremely pleased with them.

My main interest is RX (cubesat telemetry, weather sats, etc.), so one
aspect of the X-Quads that I particularly like is that the area of gain is
quite wide.  You don't have to be pointing so precisely at an object to
benefit from these antennas.

I also have an SP-70 LNA on the 70cm antenna and that is a huge help as
