It looks the part, like the static discharger on the top, thought it was a capacitance hat at first but you wouldnt put one on a true 5/8.

So, have we come to any conclusions and, if so, what is the consensus?
  • How does the Sigma Mantova Turbo compare with the other popular antennas?
    Does it meet the expectations of the quoted specifications?
    Does it represent good value?
    Is it a good 5/8 wave?
I'm looking at putting something up in the next few weeks and I'm wondering whether I should opt for a basic, low profile, low cost 1/2 wave or 5/8 wave or whether I should pay the extra and put in the effort to erect something a bit more advanced. Would the Sigma Mantova Turbo be in the latter category?

I hear and read good things about the A99, the Sigma Euro-Comm Skipmaster and others too but I'm really looking for some comparative figures in addition to long-term user experience, like yours, but perhaps where a comparison with another antenna can be made.

For a variety of reasons, I still haven't got around to buying an aerial yet or even a mast and mounting kit, which would be a start, and, six months on from my initial enquiries, I think I need to start my research again as things may have changed in the marketplace.

I don't want to go off-topic but a suggested short-list of what to go for and what to avoid would be a good starting point. I have few concerns about size or visibility of the antenna (apart from domestic objections from M3HER :roll:) so almost anything goes within reason cost-wise. I wish I still had my Avanti AstroPlane from 30 years ago. :(
