I'd like to second Dan's comments. The Mag 340N is a great antenna!
Since I was sort of mentioned recently as having had some trouble tuning
my Mag 340N, I just wanted to note that tuning was not difficult. It
*is* necessary to tune each element at 30 or 40 feet above the ground
which is easy to do if you have a pulley and rope attached. Up and down
with each element, make an adjustment, up to check, then back down to
await assembly on the boom. I had to do final assembly in the air
anyway, due to space restrictions in the yard so this was no hardship at
all. After final assembly, I found that the bandwidth was 280khz as
advertised and with a very flat swr curve...
Performance? Amazing like Dan says... And you don't even need the
mountain top. (although that would be nice!!)
