Sigma X-80  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
Recently moved into a senior housing complex. I have my X-80 mounted on the steel railing of my 4th floor balcony. The building has a metal roof and while the vertical is 24 inches away from the roof edge, it still works quite well. As situated, the tip of the X-80 is 65-70 feet above ground. Fed with RG-8X, and running 100 watts, I have worked stations all over Europe, Central and S. America even with the HF band condx in the pits. For an easy to assemble and economical priced antenna, I would recommend the X-80 in a minute. I'm located in central Michigan. Don W8WOJ
