First class antenna  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Very well constructed and easy to assemble accurately - this means that it will work as described. The antenna has a low environmental profile due to good element alignment. Robust and well engineered antenna unaffected by some high winds here. Performance on air is as expected - a very clean pattern gives good signal to noise ratio on weak signals. Front to back around 20dB. SWR is also to specification and very low - practically 1:1 to 1:1.5 for all of the bands covered when the antenna is at 20mtrs high. I am finding OB10-3W very effective in pile ups and the three bands 20/17/15 a very good choice for the low sunspot years. Great support from Tom at Optibeam.
