Works fine!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I mounted the 2m Big Wheel four weeks ago and made some fine Tropo-DX with it, always with good reports.

Very easy to assemble and the SWR is below 1:1,2 between 144-145 and below 1:1,5 between 145-146 without any alignment.

This 2m big wheel is a very fine addition to the yagi but also a great possibility for beginners on 2m SSB to start without disappointment.

So for what it is, a antenna with round radiation and horizontal polarisation with a small gain of probably 2-3 dBD I can give a rating of five.

6m Big Wheel  Time owned: more than 12 months
Easy to assemble. Not so easy to handle on the roof. But it works really fine. Bandwidth is extremely small but sufficient for ham bands. SWR below 1.5, center 1.2.
