    I just found a new type of coaxial cable that might make the pepperboxes on 5.8GHz commercially viable. Right now they are VERY hard to build. You can see Marc's very complex matching network in the back of the antenna. I've watched him spend 3 hours tuning an antenna.

    If it is broken, fix it. if it isn't broken, I'll soon fix that.

    LOL Sometimes I spend 3 hours tuning it only to toss it out and start over. Not for the faint of heart.

    Hey Alex, I just saw your post with the photos of your 5.8 ghz antenna wire gizmo. I'd love to see a video of it in action, but that might give too much away to you competitors.

    New antenna that still needs a name

    Just got this one designed. Need to put the final touches on it, still. Rejection is a little too unstable but the bandwidth is incredible. .9 Axial ratio as well!

    This will become part of the BlueBeam Pro antenna line. Now I just need a transmit antenna to match it... and 3 element does not work.

    Is that 5.8? If so when might it be available?

    Yes it is 5G8. We are a few weeks out from release, need the packaging to get here and to build up a decent supply before shipping the product.
