DBJ-UHF $50 - Perfect for GMRS - published in CQ - summer 2010 - US patented 8,947,313

This antenna was first presented at Pacificon 2010.  It was based on a grant given to us by AC Daughty Inc.  in 2010.   An article on this antenna was subsequently published in  CQ - Summer Addition 2012.  It has been granted US patent 8,947,313.   This is a unique design which met the requirements of AC Daughty Inc.   Some of the features include 5dB gain, only 3 1/2  ft tall, no radials, up to 150 MPH winds. AC Daughty Inc.  uses over 200 of these antennas in a MESH network in New York.
