Great little antenna  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I was looking for a 6 meter directional antenna, the would cover the entire band, have decent gain and rejection, yet a small foot print. This log seemed to fit the bill. In one night of openings I worked VE9OM, CU3EQ, VE1AHM, VE9NC, EA8YT, EA8BPX, AND CU2JT. Most stations giving me a report as good or very close to what I had given them. What more could you ask out of an antenna with a 6 foot boom?

I checked the F/B with a station giving me an S9, 180 deg rotation and he was S1.
