160 Gladiator verticals are in two flavors, center loaded and top loaded.
The center loaded one has a 2-1 bandwidth of about 26kHz, while the top
loaded one is more broad, I think the 2-1 is around 90klHz. Receiving is
not the greatest, but they work.
I used the center loaded version. Full 1500w no problem. If you are
for a contesting antenna and you plan on running a specific frequency,
the gladiator is okay. If you S&P, your 2-1 bandwidth gets in your way.
