We installed a two-bay Versa2une about 18 months ago at one of our sites and have been pleased. Some assembly is required. We had a tech at a local two-way shop assemble and tune the antenna to our frequency. Once it went up the tower (one bay at a time) the crew just measured and spaced the bays appropriately, and we had about as close to zero reflected as we could get. We also replaced a 6812 two-bay antenna with the Versa2une.

The former manager actually ordered the antenna, but I suspect Shively recommended it. All of our sites used 6812s until this replacement, and he was not one to just try something new on a whim when we had a good working system.
