I have one, and it works very well. The SWR, measured with a Bird wattmeter, is 1.5 or less across the
entire satellite band.  I did have to call M2 to get instructions, as the documentation which they
provided were not correct.  The new manual looks OK, and I am attaching it to the direct email.

Are there people using the M2 436CP42UG for satellite operation?
If so, could you share some experience whit this Antenna?

I have bought a used one but am unable to get it aligned in the right 
so that SWR is expectable. From the manual I get the length of the 
at 4.375 inch thats 11.1cm but it isn't working in my setup and 
changing it
in steps of 1mm doesn't bring me to the right SWR.

In some places the impedance is so bad that the radio disables power 

Thanks in advance
