I use a R8 vertical antenna. is mounted at top of my roof, about 25 ft
from the ground.
I am very pleased with his performance considering that is a vertical
The manufacturer claims that the antenna is a half-wave, but I am not sure
if it is true in all bands, especially on 30mtrs and 40mtrs.
I read on this reflector that someone ask some time ago about to add some
radial wires, but no special answer talking about it.
I am thinking to add some extras radial wires to improve the performance
on 30mtrs and on 40mtrs.
Did anyone this experience? If not... Any comment about it?
