Not a bad antenna although I would advise to 'not' use the "tie them all
together" feed system recommended by the mfgr.
I used seperate feeds switched at the mast & matching stubs to each loop.
Also, I'm not a fan of the auminum wire - I used
hard drawn 7/22 bare copper.
Lots of interaction between 10 & 12 meters, poor pattern and swr on these
Heavy antenna due to the thick wall fiberglass construction.
