Beware of fake Diamond antennas on-line!
There are seemingly many bargain price Diamond antennas on various online stores and auction sites. As the UK’s only official importer and distributor, we know how much these antennas cost and when they appear online cheaper than the cost price, you have to ask questions.
Waters & Stanton (W&S) purchased several models from suppliers online (that do not purchase Diamond products from us) and one such example is shown in our blog posts. Not only does the packaging not look the same, the element section lengths are completely wrong and therefore, performance will NOT be as it should be.
BEWARE of these grey imports, some of the biggest names in Ham Radio retailing in the UK do not source their Diamond products from us and therefore, what you purchase may be suspect. If the UK distributor was Waters & Stanton, you know you have a genuine product, if not, it could be the case your cheap purchase may not deliver the goods.
