Works Great!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I put up a 12' whip antenna about 25' away from my 1/4 wave 40 meter vertical antenna. I needed another antenna for a Yaesu VR-5000 receiver and a Timewave ANC-4 noise canceller so I put up the whip. The narrow antenna separation is due to my lot restrictions. However, I was afraid of the 100 watts of RF on the 1/4 wave antenna from my Icom 7600 transceiver harming the VR-5000 and ANC-4 so I decided to try the Receiver Guard. I am pleased to say that I can transmit at full power right on the same frequency as my VR-5000 is tuned and have no problems. In fact the Receiver Guard acts just like a QSK antenna switch - I can send CW and monitor it on my VR-5000 with full break-in receive operation. No harm to my equipment. Sweet!
