We have and GMA ELECTRONICS antenna and love it - it was easy to install and i do not have to worry about anything - no stray currents no tie downs no nothing and does it work __YEP -- it works and works well -
we were in the bahamas last winter and at the end of the season were one of the relays for one of the nets - several people have said our signal booms and we can hear from great distances
as a lark one night i decided to see how far out i could down load gribs from and from the bahamas i hit anchorage alaska, had a great connection and downloaded my gribs - now we know that propragation has a bit to do with that but all those we talk with say we have a strong signal and there are times we can hear when they can not -
i am not a electronics anything so i did not want to play around with building my own and then tying it down and then then rigging it up to the turner ect ect - we had it up and running in less than an hour

just what we experienced
