Does anybody have an lf/hf active antenna that they are willing to part with?

If you fancy an easy weekend project:

Much cheaper than buying a ready made one.

I'll second that. The Mini-Whip is an interesting antenna. Just install it as per instructions, and ignore the criticisms.

I bought mine on eBay assembled. If you go this route, make sure to get the model with the isolation transformer in the power feed unit.

Not much of an improvement over a random wire above 16MHz, but very good below 16 MHz.

If you want to 'see' one in action, go here:

The antenna was damaged in a storm a couple of weeks ago, but looks like it has been repaired.
