Letīs be honest...this is NOT the contesters antenna...

...having said that...I think itīs a pretty fair compromise for us who live with limited options due to apartment contract rules or difficult neighbors...making wire antenns no option...

The ECO-073 works okey but itīs hard to tune due to coupling effect in balcony and concrete reinforcments and so on...

I think itīs sad that ECO has gone QRT...this type of antenna has a market...

I now look for the WiMo Baby magnetic loop to replace this ECO-073.
