    I've installed two of them, but that was several years ago. Don't know if they changed anything.

    Very well built and machined, fairly easy to assemble. F/R wasn't good compared with some other beams I've installed.

    N0AX and K7LXC did real-world comparisons of several HF tribanders about 20 years ago and show the tests, the methodology, and the resulting data in a popular book: Champion Radio | HF TRIBANDER PERFORMANCE - TEST METHODS & RESULTS however they tested the PRO67 and PRO77,, and not the 57. Still makes interesting reading, though. You might want to find a copy of that.

    I installed mine in January 2020 replacing a Cush A3S. Very well built some how mine went through a baseball size hail storm unscathed that a lot of destruction here. About three weeks later another severe thunderstorm with gusts to 72 MPH, no problems. It is a lot of antenna make sure your tower (guys if any) and rotor are up to the task. I like the PRO-57B and would do it again. Reason for selecting it was I wanted an antenna that would cover 17 meters also, don't have room for 2 Yagis. It is very nice having a directional antenna on 17! :p Now if it would just open more often.
