    Now that I've moved and can put up a real antenna, now I need to know what would be better. I've narrowed the choice down to 2 different antennas. (1) Shakespear NBS2010. or (2) Solocon IMAX-2000. I'm leaning more tords the NBS2010. Does anyonne use either one of these antennas ??? And if so, how do you rate them ??????? /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    Sorry, I've got one built by a local guy, handle is Sparky, he builds the Sparky "Sparkomatic" push up antenna /forums/images/icons/grin.gif If I had to chose I would probably go with the NBS2010. I've heard good things about these, though I am not too familiar with the Solocon. A guy I talk to has the Shakespear unit.

    I think I am going to go with a NBS2010. The high wind survival rateing is a big plus for me. I live in a high winds area. /forums/images/icons/ooo.gif
