80M sounds SO good now  Time owned: more than 12 months
Copy of my note to Comtek:

I just wanted you to know how happy I am with my Comtek 80M 4 square. I finally got it erected in an optimal country side location using Rohn 20 as the radiators and elevating the entire array up 15 using fiberglass rods between tower sections. I only have a single radial on each element so far, but the results are truly stunning. From southern Texas, I have been regularly holding my own into Europe and Russia in the early evening against East Coast and Canadian stations. This past Saturday morning, I worked BA7NO who was 20 over S9 here. I will probably do a single band 80M effort in CQWW CW just to test it against big contest stations.

I want to thank you for such a fine product. When I originally bought the ACB-80 7-8 years ago, I had it installed in an extremely compromised location and got so-so results, but now that I have it installed as perfectly as I can get it, I must say that it is the most startling antenna I have heard. What a difference it makes between any of my previous antennas for 80M.

73,

Bob Evans, K5WA
