Works really well
Rating: 
First impressions was disapointment that it did not have a telescopic whip like stated in the spec, it has a stainless whip that is 77cm long so makes it no good for a ruck sack to go portable, which is why I bought it, when you take the whip out the screws eventually work there way out or in either way they get lost. Now for the good bit. I took the whip out in my camper and set it up with a mag mount and my FT818 6watts max. I had over 30 contacts on HF bands in 2 hrs.Wow it really does work. Also some contacts on 2m but swr not as good as hf.. Shame about the long whip. But works well. Review by Colin / (Posted on 25/10/2020)
A good compromise

I purchased this not for mobile but, for compact portable working. I was intrigued with the tapped coal arrangement for multiband use.
I made a bracket to fit my camera tripod and added a counterpoise. on the analyser,, all bands from 7 to 50mhz would tune to a workable level.
I heard a strong station on 20 metres and after failing to make contact on the whizzloop, swithed to this one and made the contact on the first try with 5w.
It will always be a compromise but, if its all you can put up, its a lot cheaper than the mp1 and you can still use it mobile.
Only downside, i don't think the pastic tape that indicates the measurement will not last long. I used a small length of wood to mark the measurements to tune it an the bands i wanted.
It makes a good portable antenna. may even modify it to work from a backpack. Review by G0PEK / (Posted on 14/06/2017)
