    Hello all,

    First post on your forum. I have been reading a lot and have learned a lot already. What do you think of Whelen 800d strobes? Are these good and bright? What type of strobe beacons would you recommend when daytime (overall) brightness is the primary consideration?

    Thank you.

    before the led beacons became so good the 800D was all i would use. it is one of the best built strobe beacons it is basically what every other manufacturer copied.

    if you are any were near deerfield i am going be at the ham fest there this weekend i have a used one for sale

    Thank you for your response. How does the 800d measure up in terms of brightness in your experience?

    the only self contained strobe brighter and good light spread is the super strobe
