I wonder if anyone compared the Gladiator to the Uni-Hat on 160.  I compared
the Uni-Hat to the big Gap and the Uni-Hat won every time.  Granted you need
more radials than Uni-Hat advertises (I have 2,000 feet more) but the
Uni-Hat works very well on 160 and 80 for small lot work.  And without more
radials covers a space 25 by 25 feet.  Its not W2GD or W4WA but its better
than a dipole compared to a mono bander on a higher band.   

Ed N5NUG is selling many in phased set ups 2, 3 or 4 squares.

Sounds like the Gladiator may be a good small lot/Dxpedition antenna too.
But I don;t think they make a 160/80/40 version to compare straight up to
the Uni-Hat.

BTW the ground conductivity near Atlanta is about as bad as it gets. Almost
opposite of salt water.  Look at the charts varies from 0 (thats right ZERO)
to 1
