Full 80m coverage Dipole  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
This antenna is very well built mechanically. The dipole starts with 2" od aluminum and works it's way down to 3/8". The droop is minimal with no truss.

With the MFJ-1924 mobile antenna controller, the entire band can be covered. The controller has 10 memories, I set 5 for cw and 5 for ssb. I have my cw memories setup in such a way that I can cover from 3.5 to 3.625 with a 1.5:1 or lower swr. The bandwidth can be greater if you settle for 1.75:1 or 2.0:1.
