The construction of this antenna is very simple, which appeals greatly to me (no loading coils or traps to go wrong). The construction is robust and good quality components have been used.
The longest element is over a meter long, and at my QTH (161mtr ASL) the winds whip the longest element around so hard that it would touch the other elements, so it is no installed in the loft.
Note you must mount this antenna away from other metal elements, and by means of an insulated mast (fibreglass mast or 35mm water pipe with wood insert) to get the designed performance.
The performance is not as good as a half wave dipole, but it is comparable to J-Pole and Slim Jim antennas previously used. It works well on 2m and 70cm
Furthest DX to date, using 8W FM on 70cm is 77Km

- Great performer, great price
- Fantastic antenna for base and field operation. Have tried it out on a 10ft pole at the QTH and in the field on a tripod, and gotten compliments with almost every QSO. Elements are removable and comes with both an allen key and pole clamp, cannot argue the price at all.
