Works Great! Thanks Bruce!!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Don't know what happened to my review but here goes again.

I recently erected a FLAG antenna for 160 Meter receive but found it still kinda deaf. I stumbled across Bruce's website and contacted Bruce about my set up.

Turns out the transformer I was using was either defective or not appropriate for the FLAG antenna, contrary to what that company posted.

I obtained Bruce's KB5 and WOW. What a big, big difference! Noise is low and receive signals are way up. Are they S-5? No. But with no or low noise, an S-1/2 signal is easily diecernible.

Bruce will answer questions, offer suggestions and help you out. Thanks fro Bruce, I am on the right track now whereas before, I wasn't hearing much and contemplating taking the FLAG antenna down.

Thanks Bruce! I really appreciate your help!!!
