Great antenna   Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I purchased my EFLW-1.5K, 73 foot version and all that I can say is that that this antenna works great. I live in Delaware and I am getting very strong signal reports on 40 and 20 meters.

At first, I was kind of hesitant to buy this antenna because I thought that the power was going to get "burned up" in the 9:1 unun. That is definitely not the case. This antenna performs!

I have grounded the antenna to a standard 8' ground rod. There is about 30' of wire going from the matching network to the ground rod. I will be adding more grounding soon.

I am running an FTDX-1200, AL-80B and a Palstar AT2K. I am also using the CMC-130S-3K Common mode filter where the coax enters the shack. No RF on the equipment, no RF in the audio and beautiful signal reports.

This antenna is easy to install and you can use a coax feed that is close to your shack. I am using RG-8X.

Give it a try and I am sure that you will be very happy with the results!
