The best!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Penninger mast clamps, like everything Penninger makes, define quality. The materials are first rate, the design is clean, efficient, and intended to outlast the pyramids, and the build quality is exceptional. They fit perfectly and work perfectly. Add to that the superior customer service and you have a prize-winner.

Excellent product and service  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
I've ordered and used his clamps on two occasions this year, each time with special ordered bushings to allow connection of masts with different diameters. The product was first rate as was the service.

Excellent  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
I use a Penninger MC-250 (clamp)as part of my 3/8 wave 30m vertical. The quality is fantastic, and very well designed, with great attention to detail and function. I will be buying more clamps, items etc. from Penninger.

Excellent Craftsmanship  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I have a heavy duty 2 inch fiberglass mast above a 2 inch steel mast on my tower. It is used to support my VHF and UHF beams. While I could have come up with my own sort of clamp to mate the two masts together, the Penninger mast clamp was a much better and simpler solution. It is extremely well-made and rugged. The price was reasonable. It was shipped to me very quickly. It is clear that Penninger takes pride in what they do. I will certainly do business with Penninger again when I need antenna hardware products.

Simple But Effective  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I have two of the Penninger "Tippers" and use them in conjunction with two Max-Gain Systems push-up fiberglas masts. I installed a 1.75" x 12" piece of aluminum tube in the inner diameter of the "Tipper" and the mast, and secured the junction with a 2" ID mast clamp.

This setup is completely portable and can be assembled in about 15 minutes by one person.

As with all Penninger Radio products, quality of materials and workmanship are excellent.

You really can't go wrong with Charles Penninger, and Penninger Radio Products.

Excellent for Splicing Masts  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
I have 12' of aluminum mast (also Penninger) spliced to the top of 18' of chrome-moly (6' in the tower). The top 12' has various VHF, UHF, and microwave high gain antennas. The splice is tight and the two masts appear as one.
