Simplicity at its best.  Time owned: more than 12 months
Compared to anything else I have fitted to a vehicle this antenna is HUGE.It requires a extra heavy duty mounting system.A series of adjustable banana jack "plug and play" sockets are preset on the HI-Q loading coil with a flying "hot" lead that bypasses windings on the stainless steel loading coil to QSY to the band required.A adjustable shunt inductive matching unit is employed at the base of the antenna which raises the feedpoint impedance of the antenna to 50ohms.When completly adjusted this is a set and forget system.By todays standards the antenna is out dated by the screwdriver style antennas.Have yet to compare it against 80m and 40m helical whips.It does the business though with ease on all the HF bands from 160m through to 20m plus more.
