Decent range on WSPR

I have the unit plugged into a Sandpiper MK3+3 with SWR of 1:1, could not be better and have tuned it to the WSPR frequency. Easily covering Europe but not yet intercontinental, may get a 2nd and make an elevated dipole. So I'm happy with it and considering buying another in the next month or so. Bought as fed up with wires which change with the weather, this seems weather stable. Review by Muz / (Posted on 17/12/2020)
Perfect option for limited space and mobile use

I made a dipole from two of these antennas. Works quite ok for nvis, emergency communication and the local FIRAC communication at 3,630. Adjusment did not take long. I know it is not the most sufficent antenna, but I hav not enought space for a full half wave dipole for 80m. For 40m & 20m I use other antennas. Review by Robert Prasnikar / (Posted on 17/11/2019)

I have one of these AmPro 80m whips on the campervan using a gutter mount. No amount of adjustments would bring the vswr below 2.5:1-3.0:1 without an ATU....connecting a counterpoise to it brought it more into a usable state of tune without using a tuner.
While an antenna this size was never going to be very efficient, it does facilitate the use of the 80m band while /M (static of course) .... on the whole, not a bad option.

I also use AmPro whips for 17m, 20m & 40m which work well.. Review by MM6PMQ / (Posted on 01/06/2019)
