I have finally received the film from my photos of the new five band quad that I purchased from you ——-
I had the quad several months prior to installation awaiting my tower erection. A ham friend helped me assemble the quad. While unpacking the box my friends comment was “this is sure better quality than others” — he had helped anther ham assemble a name brand quad several years ago. He told me that there was no comparison with the other quad he had assembled. Cubex was far superior.
After placement on the 50ft. tower, my first reaction was how quiet the bands were. My noise level had greatly diminished over the 17 meter mono-bander and I heard more signals with greater strength. I also now had four more bands in one antenna!
My main praise to Cubex is that as you’re aware, Illinois is and has been noted for its snow and ice. Three weeks ago we had a 2 inch ice build up from a winter storm that had our town shut down for four days. ————– Just one week ago we had another. This time ice built up 1/2 inch. If I would take a photo of your quad today, after our winter storms and compare with the photos I have enclosed, you would see no difference in the quad.
I am definitely sold on the Cubex Quad. From other hams commenting on the fine quality and performance to making it through our Illinois ice, you need to be commended on such a fine product.
