I have a GAP Voyager (160-80-40-20) and have exchanged and noted opinions on
GAPs. My Voyager works quite well on bands except the lowest (160) and I hear
the same is true for the Challenger (in this case, 80). Contrary to factory
instructions, I have raised the counterpoise a few feet above the ground and
installed a ground system and believe that improved my 80 meter results.
