Maco FLAT-6 6-Element V/H Beam

So another Maco within the EU was pinged to me yesterday and boy it’s a big one! Costing a whopping €960 this is a six element with both horizontal and vertical polarization. It’s superb to see these antennas on the shores of Europe. If something is good for the USA market then sure it’s good for EU too.
