    Could I run two cross hairs

    Could I run two cross hairs at the same time with divesity? Mabe at a 30 deg angle 180 from each other ? The cross hair blows my clover out of the water .


    mabe in a arangment somthing like a ^ with one on each side ,it could be made to be a carry all also with a handle on top and space for prettty much every thing you need .

    Yes definitely. Many people use their diversity receivers like this to get a big beam-width without needing a tracker. Two Crosshairs is like 250 degree beam-width which is huge.

    Makes it much harder to manually track your rig if the signal degrades. It also is pulling in more interference as well... keep that in mind.

    I get
    great reception in front of cross hair, but not nearly as good with sqew. The diversity eagle eye wont switch untill signal is terrible.

    I used to use a helical and an spw with an eagle eyes and had the same issue. I got a pepperbox and just quit using diversity altogether. So much better!!!

    You know you can easily adjust the eagle eyes diversity sensitivity?

    I made the pepperbox to eliminate the need for the diversity. However, diversity will allow you to get a little bit better penetration for flying behind objects as the Crosshair is better at penetration.

    I have never been a big fan of diversity. I find one antenna alone works best for me. Not everyone shares this belief, though/
