    Hi guys,

    Is anyone using this antenna, or one of a similar style?:

    If so, how are you finding it? I'm thinking of replacing the antenna on my P2V+ transmitter with this one.

    Cheers

    Glad to hear it's working - are you getting noticeably further distances? And did you splice your cable or remove the epoxy?

    That looks good - mine didn't come with the antenna holder :(

    I guess you scraped off the epoxy as opposed to splicing the cable?
