Good Performer  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I saw this antenna listed on a Auction Site and decided to take a chance on it. It's "Made in Germany" and put together well with quality rugged parts and a heavy duty plastic case. I have been presently surprised. Seems to perform well on 40, 20 and 10 although not advertised necessary as a 6 meter antenna it will tune 6 meters with no problem, it's NOT a 6 meter DX antenna by any means but it is good for single hop E's with no problem. Mine has the apex at 30 ft and the ends are about 15 ft. Plugged in direct to my IC-7600, using the IC-7600 internal tuner it will tune to anyplace you want to go on the band. I think it works best on 20 and 40 meters... I'm a CW op and routinely have been working South Pacific and Europe on it with no problem. Great choice for a Field Day antenna or something for remote operations.
