I have a DX-CC and and DX-LB+ my 2 cents:
The DX-CC is a great antenna, got mine at a garage sale many years ago. Was my first antenna and I worked a boatload of DX with it. Liked it so well I bought the DX-LB+ which covers 160 too and is one on my many antennas I use now.
I currently use the DX-CC for field and vacation setup, still works great. I've mounted it close to the ground (10 feet), on a couple trees at a lake 20 feet up (worked ZL, VK and U) and even as a vert dipole! I seem to always make contacts and have a blast. I did notice once 80 wasn't all that hot close to the ground though as you might figure.
You will need an SWR bridge (beg or borrow) to set it up initially just to be safe, esp if your neat any objects or low. The instructions get you pretty close.
I would recommend it with 5 stars. I'm living proof its pretty much idiot proof to install and use
Drop me an email if you need any 1 on 1 help.
Welcome to ham radio! Hope to talk to you soon down the log.
