Dual band VHF/UHF beam antennas are kind of rare. The Cushcraft A270-10S uses 5 elements on each band for an advertised gain of 10dB on each band. Boom length is slightly over 6 feet and has a wind load of slightly under .75 square feet. Antenna weighs 1.8 lbs. Power is limited to 350 watts. My 4CX250B 2 meter amp works well with this antenna without issues. The higher power 350 watt solid-state 'brick' amps would be excellent with this antenna. I set up the antenna and got a flat SWR on 2 meters and 1.3 to 1 SWR on 432 mHz. 2 to 1 SWR bandwidth is advertised as 4 MHz on VHF and 15 MHz on UHF. 10dB gain is enough for long haul earth bound SSB use and the 60 degree beamwidth at -3dB is not too narrow allowing monitoring for signals without constantly changing the antenna direction. Most newer multiband radios have a single coax input for VHF & UHF making a splitter unnecessary with the A270-10S antenna single coax feed. It is a good value for $170.
