Biggest difference between those two, is the M103 can only be set up for Horizontal polarization, or Vertical, but not both...

The Y-Quad go's both ways...You would have two coax cables running to this antenna and back to your station where you would need a switch, so you can go from Vertical to Horizontal without having to disconnect the coax from the back of the radio each time.

Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
