 Hi Pete,
I have not had a problem. The phasing harness was put in place and the plug ends sealed with silicone.
It has not been a problem here and the antennas perform beyond expectation.
I will be doing a routine check in 3 months and will double check at that stage.
Thanks you for your concern, and congratulations on a fine product.

Pete,
Well damnit after six months got the beams up and running. Couple of my buddies and I put them up Friday afternoon on a 25 foot tower. Yes, they do one hell of a job and I am happier than an old hog in a pile of crap with the performance. You can see I am only using an azimuth rotor and we angled them close to 45 degs. I never would have believed how strong VO-52 comes barreling in with signals going over S9 and I can copy it from horizon to horizon.

Sent the two pictures to QSLworks for a customized QSL card just for satellite work. I may even have the guy put a UFO picture above the beams as I want these cards to be original so to speak.

So, the bottom line is they are one damned good set of beams and I would highly recommend them. You did the right thing by going with RG-6 as real easy to work with and SWR very satisfactory.

Thanks again.

Important Notice about phasing cables and connectors on the circular polarity antennas. For a long time we used LMR 400-75 as the cable of choice for the phasing of our satellite CPs. Because this cable is so stiff and the bends required to connect the cables on the 70CM antennas was very tight, the crimps were too stressed and sometimes the cable pulled out of the connector. We used the non crimp solder type for a while. These had their own problems in that they would twist and the braid would become totally disconnected. Again the cable would pull out of the connector.

We are now shipping these antennas with LMR 240-75. This cable is smaller than it's larger counterpart and should solve the problem. All antennas including 2 meters will have top quality type N four hole flange female connectors on the T match blocks. No more SO 239's and PL259's. Cable ends are prepared with Times MicroWave strip tools designed for this cable. In this case the Green Tool.

Thanks to all of my customers for your support. We are experiencing high demand again for our circular polarity satellite antennas.

Hi Pete,

Thanks for the reply. I got both Antennas assembled and have the 8x8 UHF out on the Rotator and it works great. The 5x5 VHF will go out this weekend. These things are built like tanks and I'm glad to have them. If I have any other questions I'll let you know. It's nice to know that you'll support the product no matter the owner, great service.

Pete,
I am starting to unpack the antennas.
Your workmanship is beautiful.
