Well-built antenna and performs well in a less than ideal situation
Rating: 
I recently moved from a location with a garden to a 1st floor flat, with no outside access, so the loft seemed to be the answer for antennas. Unfortunately my old X-300 was just a foot too tall to fit and I finally found the SQBM500 on "sale", and it looked like it would JUST fit - which it did.

The SQBM500 is secured in its place in the attic and fully operational. Compared with my old X-300 (outside with the base around 15 feet above ground, at about the same ASL) it seems pretty good, and I get into all the repeaters that I did before, plus one that I've never worked before, about 30 miles away with some high ground in between. A UHF repeater also around 30 miles away with terrain between is a good Q5 too. Pretty good for in the loft!

I still need to trim it a bit as the best resonance is a bit low, but I'm very pleased with the performance. Thanks to Moonraker for all your assistance with the N-Plug on my feeder cable.
