super bit of kit  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
well i have been using it for a couple of months now and itís the best antenna i have had in a vehicle for some years, i know it does not tune on 160 or 50 mhz with the small whip, but i have been working all over the glob from the west coast of the usa to the far reaches of vk and zl, superb build quality and stunning tuning with no rf getting back to the radio or outboard speaker in the car, the only thing i had to do was change the rs232 plug on the end for the normal tuner socket on the rear of the icom radios, this saves you a chunk of money and it seems that itís only offered as a opc cable as some people canít use a soldering iron,

thumbs up for icom, i know itís costly but itís the best i can and have found,

ps: if you have a covert wire antenna up just remove the antenna whip and connect your wire to the ah/740 press tune and away you go,

one very happy icom fan and mobile user,
please note: this review was for the 740 NOT the 760, I do not have the 760,

Works well  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
Have used this antenna on my IC-7100. It tunes extremely quickly. Works well on all bands up to 20m. Tuned ok on 80m as well but with the short 2 metre whip wasn't so efficient. I tried the new Icom NVIS kit on it and made a whopping difference. Signals up by at least 3 S points both ways.
Overall, great little performer. It's basically an AH-4 cut down into smaller boards and fitted inside the case.
