- 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.
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..
