Perfect lightweight beam  Time owned: more than 12 months
I replaced my old FB-33 with the TB-7 and it was a real experience to hear stations I never knew existed before. It performes much better. The beam is fed via open wire and matched via a symmetrical tuner (AT-502 in my case). I got mine used, but assembly was straight forward and easy to do. The main advantage of this antenna is the low weight, it weighs only 14kg!
On 30/40m it operates as dipole, on 10-20m (incl. WARC) as 3 element yagi, no traps, no losses. I am using Titanex twincom cable from the antenna to the remote tuner on my mast, but you could use a 1:4 balun and coax as well.
The antenna is very flexible and has survived quite some storms with more than 120km/h gusts 11m above ground without any problem at all.
I can only recommend this antenna and give it a 5.
