Fabulous  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Antenna was put together with no gliches. Fine instructions, riveting a snap. Put on tower 45' up. Works all 5 bands with full coverage and low swr and handles Alpha 87A amp at full power no sweat. I would highly recommend this antenna to anyone looking for first class operation with no traps. Extremely pleased with appearance and performance.

Works fine....  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Put up the XR5 along with a new tower in September. Assembly was a snap...:) Gotta love the rivet technique. Attached the XR to the mast, hooked up the coax and away it went. SWR was right where it was supposed to be. No problems so far, other than I discovered how badly I did some pl-259 connectors when I pushed 800 watts to the antenna....:) Signal reports are excellent. The antenna had it's first icing from a storm here in Colorado and the elements sprang back just fine. Wind out here (60mph+) hasn't bothered the antenna a bit.

In short....happy with the antenna and would buy another one in a heartbeat.

"Good from the get-go"  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
I have had my Force 12 XR5 up at 50' since the first of June. The antenna design and its functionality are both excellent. The antenna went together and went on the air with no problems and operates flawlessly with full coverage on all bands.

As with my EF515, I am well pleased with the XR5. After much investigation it was and is a good choice.
