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.
