|Customer Reviews for the V-2R.|
|From: Derek N4DBM|
|The V-2R is a nice addition to the ham station, whether it be for casual operation or repeater/APRS. The antenna is constructed with much heavier materials than others in its price range. It has an SO-239 connection which is completely weather-proof when installed. The bandwidth is wide, the match is excellent, and it is DC grounded.|
I have one of these mounted atop a 150 foot tower that experiences high winds quite often. It has never failed once. The gain of the antenna (3 dBd) is true gain rating over a half-wave dipole. Beware that many other antenna claims are rated over an "isotrope" which is a hypothetical comparison that is 2.1 dB lower than a dipole!
I would recommend this to anyone needing a dependable, cost effective antenna for just about any purpose on the 2M ham band.

|The best 2 meter vertical I have seen. Mine has been in service for about 10 years. I have been working repeaters 60 miles away on 10 watts with the V-2R, with the antenna resting 14 ft off the ground.|

|I've been using the older V-2S for the last 24 years. |
It's STILL got a 1:1 and it still works perfectly.
It really 'gets out'.. Nice range... and quiet.
The antenna has survived 3 moves and has outlasted the feed line by a wide margin. Will I buy another? 100% for sure!
Thanks for making such a great product.
Now if only hy-gain made cars... refrigerators, TVs... etc....
