Takes a lot of Noise  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
The Traps were open each on one side and the Balun had some holes on its Box, but for what ??? I put there some liquid Silicone in what now assure the Watertightness.

The SWR drifts about 19KHz when its raining while the Antenna is inverted V at 6m over Ground in the Middle and about 3m at the ends.

There isnt any Problem for me than, I get a lot of Noise on 40m. The G5RV I have gives me the same receiving strength on the desired signal but with 5 S-unites less Noise (at average) on 40m.
