MaCo 500? Never herd of a MaCo 500...There's a MaCo Laser 500 8 element beam antenna that's around $900, which I'm sure is very good, if you have the cash and strong enough tower to stick it on!

Hello bograndie,
Welcome to the forum. JJD has a good question, are you talking a base beam antenna? Years ago Wilson was sold to Maco antennas which in turn was bought by Charles Electronics,LLC, who also makes Gizmotchy Antennas. I don't think the quality of the antennas has changed.
I see you are new to the forum, could you post an intro here, viewforum.php?f=89 so others can say "Hi", thanks.
