Stealth Dual Band With SWR Scan.jpg


Lscott

I picked up a cheap no-name Ghost/Phantom antenna at a local Ham swap a long while back. I wanted to test one since some people swear by them. And from my results likely will swear at them.

The testing was done with the antenna screwed into a magnet mount on a large sheet metal ground plane. These antennas are basically loaded 1/4 wave vertical antennas and thus require a good ground plane for proper operation.

The sample I got I'm not impressed with it. The antenna is VERY narrow banded on VHF. The SWR on the Ham 70cm band isn't too bad, but on GMRS it's poor.
