*NEW* Antenna Time

I’m asked a lot about mobile antennas. Questions from bandwidth till “what’s the best one” of course that’s impossible to answer as everything is different to everyone so it’s a nest of vipers to get involved with. Hopefully time permitting I’m going to take a look at some long released antennas to see how they work for me.

Maybe the Sirio antennas are the same as original Performer 5000 and Hi Power 3000 who knows and with SD contest, Island events and hopefully nice weather it’s time to try them out. If you’ve tried them out please let me know!
