|Customer Reviews for the ASL-2010.|
|From: Roger Simpson K5RKS|
|I put up the ASL-2010 in the Spring of 2005. It has been working flawlessly ever since and is still going strong in October 2012. It survived a brutal ice storm a few years ago and also heavy wind that destroyed the yagis of a number of hams in Central Oklahoma. |
The antenna is easy to put on the air because there are no "adjustments" or "tuning". It is broadband enough that it works out of the box. Using this antenna I've been able to advance my count of DXCC countries worked and confirmed from 105 to 324.
I have not done any side by side scientific tests, but I'd say that the forward gain is "more or less" the same as seen of my old triband yagi. However, the beauty of the log periodic is that it works 20, 17, 15, 12, and 10 meters.
