I am very pleased with my 43 foot vertical for regional and even close 
in contacts.   I am making contacts I could not before.

I agree, however,  that having a horizontal wire antenna can be helpful 
for filling in the gaps and may give you something that might work 
better in some cases than the vertical, and vice versa.

I will send you my take on MFJ v EXE vertical antenna components and 
design previously posted herein.   I won't burden the list with a 
reprise thereof, but the conclusion I have drawn is the DXE product is 
competitive in price and superlative in quality.

Happy trails.
