I'm impressed.  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I bought this antenna to use while camping in my motorhome. I instal it in a "Flag Pole" Buddy mounted on the rear ladder. It was a little bulky at first to set it in the Buddy but I got the hang of it. This is a real quality, machine shop quality, product. The rig is an IC-2200 with the LDG AT-200. It is a great combination,too. While in Big Bend National Park, I made over 100 contacts with excellent reports. Tom, N9ZV, could not be more helpful. Highly Recommened.

Excellent Quality and Performance  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
The manufacturing quality of this antenna is excellent with high quality aluminum stock used throughout. The antenna comes pre-marked for assembly and is easily put together.

I am not under any HOA restrictions but wanted to maintain a low profile in my neighborhood that has all underground utilities. I applied a light coat of paint in a woodland camo motif, and it blends nicely with its surroundings. I had no intention of using radials, and when I first tried it out, I found that most bands had an SWR of right at 1.5:1 or less. I decided to add two radials, 27 foot (the same length as the vertical) after consulting with Tom at Zerofive. Having done that, my SWRs on 40, 20, and 15m are almost flat using an LDG AT-600PROII tuner. The other bands are 1.5:1 or less, and even 80m tunes at 1.2:1; not bad for a 10-40m antenna. I have made many DX contacts and am very satisfied, especially having used it for only about a week.

Tom, N9ZV, at Zerofive provided great customer support on questions concerning the antenna installation and radials.
