Plug & DX  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
That dipole was what I was missing to cover 40 and 80 meter bands. The dipole is 27 meters long and light weight. I simply attached the balun (rated at 1KW) under the rotator of my hexbeam. Feed point was about at 11 meters and the antenna was in an inverted V shape. First contacts were made during CQWW CW 2014. Plenty of DX were logged on 40 and some more on 80.

Well designed and flat SWR on all 40-meter band. Mine was resonating better on 80 SSB than CW. With a bit of tuning, no problem to completely cover the band.

Cheaper than competitors and great communication with Rodrigo EA7JX. That antenna is the easiest solution to be QRV on the low bands. I give it a 5!
