really helps HF reception on scanners  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
There are two versions of this antenna; one with a built-in rechargeable battery, and one with an external 9v battery clip. I bought the first one.
Construction quality is very good; it's not flexible, but sturdy and should stand up to some abuse. Using it with several wideband radios such as an AR8200, Yupi9000, Alinco DJX2000 greatly increases the reception of all HF frequencies. As with most active antennas, you need to keep it away from sources of electrical noise, but outside it compares to a 10-20' wire, and even in hotel rooms I've seen signals come in comparably to a good portable radio such as a Tecsun PL880, on my AR8200. I recommend it to anyone who travels with a wideband portable radio.
