Anyone using (or used) a Titanex HF Quad or LP antenna?  They look quite interesting, and the prices are reasonable.

I would appreciate any feedback on them--construction, assembly, and operation.

Thanks

Hello Sam,

you better ask this question in Europe or especially in Germany because Titanex as a German company is more known and used here.

I did use LP5 and LP11 antennas on DX-ped. and know lots of Hams using LP.. at home. The LP5 (5 ele 20-10m) is small (boom size), light (material titanum) and plays like a 3 ele yagi. 20m is not that good because the longest element works as driven element (no reflector). Ask users for their opinions (LP5 ask dl7au@ea8.de, dk7yy@darc.de).

I don't know anybody using this 2 ele Quad. But I don't like it because you need a antenna tuner and a special feedline for it.
regards Holger, DL7IO

Hi Sam,
I've heard some stories about their wire-log periodics.
They seem to work great but need a lot of maintenance.
Best regards, Dick PA3DUV
