New 2M/70CM Base Base Antenna

After 12 years of service in severe Icelandic weather conditions, it is time to replace my existing dual band VHF/UHF base antenna.  After careful consideration I decided on the new Diamond X-50N dual band antenna.  The antenna has earned outstanding reviews by radio operators world wide.  I appreciate the “N” connector option, the stainless steel hardware and high gain.   The antenna will be fed by a low loss LMR-400 coax cable with a Mouser Electronics professional clamp (non crimp) N-connector.  I am expecting excellent results upon completing the installation.
