    I have a Diamond X50A. It is an absolutely great antenna. Just don't over-tighten the coax connector. You might end up with a dead antenna. The gain is super and the swr is almost 1:1 on both bands.

    What type of installation are you looking at? Mobile, portable or fixed location?

    I'm real fond of the Diamond SG7900 (I think that's the model) for mobile installations. It's the biggest one. It blows a 2m 5/8's out of the water. Drawback is BIG and $$$-- No pain no gain.
