I hope you didn't pay too much. The advertised prices I've seen for this are outrageous for the real performance and build quality.
Ty for the reply, yes I bought new & paid way too much for what it is & can do @ around $70. The advertised Antenna Gain: VHF: 28dB UHF: 30dB @ website http://www.lavasat.com/en/upload/pro...000_Manual.pdf is a big laugh & it is not recommended from my end as what a homeowner might want for a ground plane antenna but it might please a traveler with a mount on an RV due to the size. Lava did reply to me & said it was designed that way but no elaboration of what purpose the little wire achieved.
