Simple an Works!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Installed the antenna an its working fine, no tuner required, could use the radios tuner if I want to brighten the signal for weak signals an long shot DX, Have a very good G5RV that's is close to my Ultimax 40-80 DB most of the time, What I like is not having to tune this antenna when changing bands an having a good clear receive, When transmitting if I need extra power I just flip a switch
an there's 1200w, an not needing to tuneup or going through a tuner for 75-80m where I do Rag Chewing most mornings. Antenna was easy to install on a mast I have on the roof of this QTH. Another winner from ULTIMAX ANTENNAS I do believe.................kb6hrt

Excellent Antenna  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
I have been using this half-wave end fed antenna for a few months now, I tried it in a slop and in inverted L configuration and it perform excellent.

These are my SWR reading with 100 FT of RG-8 coax, 10-80 meter below 1.5 on all band. I also did some A&B switch comparison with my 40 meter delta loop and it worked the same on 10,15,20 meter and on 40 the loop was better by 1-2 S-units in noise level, but that's normal for a loop.

This antenna is very well built, so If you are looking to buy and all band antenna this is it, Congrats! to ULTIMAX for an excellent product.
