Excellent antenna  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I just installed this beast at 120' on my rotating tower. The workmanship is excellent, everything is heavy duty. Ken sent me two boom to mast mounts since it was going to be side mounted on my 55g rotating tower.

Mechanically this antenna is very well designed.

The antenna matches the spec's published. The SWR is as follows:

40m - 7.000 (1.5:1), 7.210 (1.5:1), 7.250 (2.25:1)

A tuner will handle the high end of 40m if I go that high.

30m - 10.1 (1.0:1), 10.150 (1.25:1)

FB is excellent as well.

If the RBN network is any indication, I should have an arsenal on 30m and 40m.
