I never could get this antenna to work right. I had lots of trouble with
those loading wires breaking and getting screwed up. Maybe the wind did
something to those wires. Also, the little stand offs that the wires attach
to broke off on two occasions. I finally trashed it and bought a
Cushcraft...it was the best decision I ever made!
I have had great success with Force 12 antennas and have C3 up now but that
particular antenna was no bueno.
