Hi Les,

I have used those X-Quad antennas for 2m and 70cm operation and achieved in
both cases level 8 in the ZRO test. 

I have setup them switchable LHP and RHP and some description can be found
on my website at www.dd1us.de

Best regards

Betreff: [amsat-bb] WiMo X-Quad Antennas with phasing cables

I'd really like to upgrade my attic mounted antennas for satellite work. 
(Completely hooked on the birds at this point!)

I have a tripod rotor system that I can dedicate to nothing but a 2 Meter
and 432 antenna, preamps, and AZ/EL rotor. Among the antennas that I've been
looking at are the Wimo X-Quad antennas with phasing harnesses.


Just wondering if other satellite operators have used these antennas, and
what your experience has been like? Is there another antenna system that I
should consider instead? Outside mounting is impossible due to HOA, and
antenna length is a factor too.
