Hi all,

Has anyone here used Benelec elevated feed UHF aerials, and are they any good?

DSE has a Benelec elevated feed UHF aerial pac with interchangeable 3db and 6db whips, heavy duty spring and 5m lead/connector for about $99.

Savvas,

Haven't used that one you mentioned, but use to do the same thing with Polar aerials, swap the longer whip, for a short one in city. Works well. Good value @ $99, from DSE.

Have used Benelec base aerial for years, work okay.

Hooroo...

Have been using this one for a couple of years, works fine, no real difference in performance to the GME etc in convoys.

Got mine at Super Cheap on one of their 20% sale days for around $80.

Same here, I have always used them and never had a problem (except knobs who break of the aerials).

Savvas had the same on on my steel bar for about 5 years, never snapped an aerial and works a treat. I dont even bother swapping, leave the 6db one on all the time. The little stubby sposed to be great for convoy, wont transmit way over the tops of the other vehicles in the convoy.
