Highly recommend the folks at Shively. The have been great working with us on a 25 year old 6812 3 bay antenna (how's that for service after sale?) in St Croix that was damaged during Hurricane Maria (it has survived many hurricanes), trying to keep it going until a new 4 bay can be fabricated and installed. While we are going with the 6812c, I have heard really good things about their Versa2une, especially if you ever have to change frequency as they are easily field tuned. 

Speaking of installation, any recommendations on a tower crew who works in the Caribbean for our new antenna installation?

What frequency? The BKG77 works best if not at the either end frequencies.

Could the think tank here on the forum give their input please?


We are constructing a transmitter site under 1Kw, omni-directional, non-commercial band and have narrowed the choice down to one of two antennas.  We have good price offers on both, but a difference of several hundred dollars between them.


One is the Nicom BKG77, the other the PSI FML-1B-HR.  Our Consulting engineer says either will work, but didn’t provide a preference or advice on either.  We want the best possible performance and signal for the available funds, so would appreciate any advice on these two you  might have.


Anyone using these particular units?  Strengths, issues, problems?
