Hey guys -
I have an RV-7C and tried the 75/80 add on 5 years ago.
It is a real piece of crap and never worked at all, it was certainly a waste
I spent hours with Gary Jr and Sr from Mosley trying to get the thing
working...I asked for
refund as well but they said it had to be something with in my environment
which it was not.
Now the RV-7C works well, a tuner helps to touch it up a bit and it handles
high power well with no issues.
The best part about the antenna is that it does not need any radials, it was
a military design made to just
stick in the sand and go. I have had mine for over 10 yrs and have worked a
lot of DX with it.
It's a very rugged design and has held up nicely in my back yard in the
If you have any questions let me know.
Happy New Year !
