Easy mounted - Allround Multiband for HF  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Originally a trapped wire developed by W3DZZ.
I bought the LA1IC construction of this antenna and I was amazed of how easy it tuned with less than 1.5:1 (5-100W) on 80, 40, 20, 15 and 10m.

I don't have the opportunity to install the antenna optimal, that is horizontal with a 180 degree angle between the elemnts, 18ft above ground.

Although, I have experimented a bit and mounted it as an inverted-V / Slope similar wire. Only 9-6ft above ground, and successfullly listened to stations on 80 and 40m, and even had QSOs on these bands.

The ease of mounting and decent RX (2-5S noise if mounted as I did) will make this my #1 mobile antenna for HF.

I will come back with more results as I figure.
