Question Antenna Factory, Inc.

Any opinions on products from the Antenna Factory (Inc)? I think they are out of Chicago. Some of their antennas look like the Winegard Sharpshooter. One AF antenna has a gain of 14, sounds impressive. I know the DHC saying, "if it's not on the chart- don't buy it". So these antennas are junk?

goforit, I think you mistook their products for TV antennas - they are special-purpose 50Ω radio antennas, not 75Ω or 300Ω for TV. If you chose the models that cover the TV bands they'd still work, but their gain and SWR would not meet their 50Ω-optimized radio specs so they'd be unsatisfactory.
