I had recently ordered this antenna and decided to use it for Field Day this past weekend. Setup 20′ vertical on my crappie pole then horizontal and up maybe 5 more feet to a tree, running SSE. Took about 15 minutes. Used my MTR-3, no tuner, 3×3.7v LiIon batteries, AME PortaPaddle and ATH ANC-3 earbuds. One the air about 6 hours total Sat/Sun. Results: 48 sections in 36 states with 100 (my goal) total contacts. 1.5:1 SWR on 20/40m.
VERY pleased with both quality of construction and its ability. I ran ‘S&P’ rather than trying to CQ, and I think only a couple stations didn’t hear my 5W.
I am in Oklahoma but was able to work ENY, NFL, LAX, WWA, WY, CT etc as well as BC and SK in western Canade off what should have been the ‘back’.
