My CC XM-240 which was only installed a couple of
months ago outperformed the older model CC 40-2CD
which is owned by another local ham during an on air
signal comparison (Same power & height)with a north
SWR is flat from 7.0 - 7.120 , SWR 1.5- 2.0 from
7.120-7.200 & 2.0 - 3.0 from 7.200-7.350 .
I have generated huge pileups on 40 with this antenna
& most packet spots compliment the signal strength.
* A special thanks to all those who helped me with
their useful suggestions & recommendations prior to
purchase & during installation of the antennas.
