During the recent ARRL CW DX contest, my old thinking that 40M is the best band during the bottom of a cycle was thwarted.
20M was the star of that show. 40M was “OK”, but it went against my usual thinking
I’ve had the UrbanBeam for 2 years now, and because I was able to get 65′ of AB-577 mast this past year, my enthusiasm for the UrbanBeam continues like no other antenna that I have had, even my past fave, the N6BT DXU-32.
The UrbanBeam offers Top of Honor Roll performance in a format that is easy to install on a small suburban lot.
After two years, I actually appreciate my UrbanBeam even more than when I put it up. I feel it’s not just a “convenient” antenna, I feel it’s the best DXing antenna I’ve had
My N6BT DXU-32 was better on 40 and 20, but when you are working towards Honor Roll, it is very useful to have something decent on 40 – 6M.
OK, so maybe what I’m really trying to say is that the UrbanBeam is the best no compromise all band antenna from 40 – 6M.
Yeah, that’s the ticket!
