The larger 2 element antenna is for the 2 meter repeater and was readjusted for a better coverage pattern.

The old 2 bay antenna was replaced with the new 4 bay UHF antenna shown on the right. The new antenna improved the gain of the 440 repeater from 5.5dbd to 9.5dbd for both receive and transmit.
