Great FUN  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I purchased the Silver Bullet Vertical Base antenna to take on Vacation at Galveston TX. Beach, installed quickly, within 50 paces of the Beach, 100ft of Rg8x mini, with 4-35 feet copper radials, had a blast, contacts all over the world, South America, Europe, and every contact made reference to the excellent signal I had with the Vertical, all in all...I had a Blast using the Silver Bullet Vertical Base, and I will take it with me again while on "Walk About"...I really enjoy the Vertical, loads of Fun and worked well for me.

great antenna  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
This is the best portable antenna I've ever owned the 1000 is up on an 8' tripod with 2 radials 30' long so far I have had over 300 contacts sense June I use it portable and at home I put a 102" whip on it and with 20 watts from my battery powered FT 897 I can talk all over the USA for the price you wont find a better antenna

Base Antenna  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
I've had this now for a few months using it on 40M & 30M primarily but I was able to tune it on all bands with less than 1.5 SWR. The installation was pretty quick about 10 minutes including pounding the mounting pole in clay 2 ft. I don't have a ton of ground radials 12 34ft. I have been able to work many stateside and DX stations with less then 10w with my setup. Is it better than a dipole at 30-40 ft probably not. But it is a very good compromise if you have limited space like I do for the lower bands. The coil seems to be made well and so far I have not had any issues with it. For me the number of clicks didn't match what was in the documentation but that was not too much of a big deal. All in all It's a good buy for a multiband antenna.
