Super Array Controller  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
Jim (Comtek Systems) has designed and built a very high quality array controller unit for 2, 3, or 4 square arrays. With the sun spot cycle on the decline 40, 80, and 160 meters are the bands of choice for reliable communications in the HF range. Nothing works better than a "Four Square Array". Check out John DeVoldere's (ON4UN) bible on "Low Band DXing".

The Comtek Systems controller is well-designed, and works exceptionally well. My typical reports across the country and DX include comments like - "You went from a 20 over 9 to unreadable when you switch the direction of the array." In fact, you don't even have to be in contact with anyone to see the exceptional performance. Just tune in a good strong signal, take a reading on it, and then switch the controller in a different direction. The signal vanishes from your receiver's speaker. Nothing ! Just band noise. This is an unbelievable system at a very fair price. Thanks, Jim for all your technical advice and assistance in the contruction of my four - square.
