    In this video I compare three antennas to see which one, if any, out performs the others. I will be comparing the Signal Stick from Signal Stuff, Diamond SRH770S and the Abbree "Tactical" Antenna. I travel 1/2 mile, 1mile, 2 miles and 5 miles from my home. I also have a QSO with 2 others in the area. The Radios used were the Wouxun KG-UV8E for receive, and I transmitted on the Yaesu FT-70.

    Interesting comparison. Thank you. Of course, height always wins but I still think I'll try one of the Abree's just for fun. I'll just have to be careful not to poke someone's eye out with it.

    Abree...very disappointing in a light breeze. It's like trying to hold a tape measure up in the air, just folds over with the slightest wind. In the trash it went.

    The video doesn't state which band was used in the test. 2m or 70cm?

    Interesting video, I thought the Diamond would be your winner, but have to say I think the Abree edged it. 73. P.S. beautiful country and excellent picture quality outdoors.

    Yep we are a society that would rather have cheap instead of quality. I'm so tired of hearing "well for the price it's good enough". No it's not. At least it didn't take much room in the trash.
