After the X9 was on the ground, I removed the balun from the beam. Last year the wind destroyed my rotor, a tailtwister but left the antenna alone. OverView of the X7. Plusafter looking cuhscraft the amount of gain on the X9 – too much material for just about a 1 db increase. Performance is just as advertised, based on observed beamwidth, front-to-back and VSWR curves.
