Update review  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Further to the last one, I now just keep this single antenna in the car for HF work - it works great and good reports back. Best was 20m into the US Virgin Islands one night when /M @ 80W with a 44 report back. Others on 40 have been VK7 and JA, but no chance to punch through the pileups..:(

Make sure ur set up is well grounded and ferrites liberally spread, and enjoy urself. Cannot give enough praise.

Value for money antenna  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Rang SRC on Tuesday afternoon (tea time)ordered antenna and delivery promised for Thursday,sure enough it turned up on Thursday,no problems with service>Been using antenna for last two weeks mobile,good contacts on 10,15,17,20 and 40mtrs throughout Europe.No problem in tuning with little LDG tuner on all bands,as for 80 mtrs,tunes up no problems.For the money i was impressed with the antenna mounted on a mag mount on my car,did all i wanted it to do for a mobile antenna.

SRC 8010 HF Mobile  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Service not the best. None of my emails were ever answered or replied to. Many people in the trade warned me about this. Mobile never gets answered and took me three weeks to get a response from the landline. I ordered on a Monday and took delivery on Friday after being lied to about when my item was dispatched. The courier company confirmed they actually collected it 2 days later than Simon told me and plus it was only Economy service after being promised next day. Very poor service. Product works ok but not on 80m. Seems ok 14-21mhz
