great for travel  Time owned: more than 12 months
I took my Outbacker Outreach to Sint Maarten last week. It is my third trip with this antenna and needless to say, it did not let me down. I have mine mounted on a 4 foot long ground rod topped with a 3/8 x 24 threaded mount. I use 2 x 34 foot long radials laid down on the beach. I carry it in a ski bag. This antenna, along with my FT897 and Tokyo High Power HF-1kx amp (500W), which I carry in a
Pelikan case makes a great combination for travel.
Total for about 15 hours of casual operations were 1200 contact and 146 band countries. Highlight?
Hugh JA pileup on 30 meters every evening at sundown.

It really WORKS!  Time owned: more than 12 months
I've had this combination since it was released over 4 years ago. It has provided me with exceptional service and the build quality has enabled me to erect it dozens and dozens of times. The tripod is in the same condition today as it was when it was new! Is it as good as a full size antenna? Well no, but I have worked the world on 100 watts or less. One caveat, if the ground is rocky as in mountain topping your going to need radials but if the ground is relatively conductive, in the valleys or near the shore, you are going to be able to set up a HF station with antenna in 5 minutes or less and work the world! Great product!

ready when you need it  Time owned: more than 12 months
This is the best way I have ever found to get on the air, in a hurry, with little effort and a good signal. I've had the setup since just after it came on the market, probably 5 years ago. Works as well now as then. The value is remembered long after the price is forgotten. And, I use the Outreach on a trailer-hitch-mount on the truck when mobile. Double-duty!
