Here is the information about the NVIS Antenna. Also this link is excellent:


Why use an NVIS antenna?

To work the Skip Zone {out to about 1000 miles}.
Areas behind obstructions and in dense foliage.
To hear the near in stations just beyond ground wave range.
Great for Field Day and contesting as a "Gap Filler" antenna.
Easy antenna for HF mountain topping and camping trips to get RF out of deep

Must work frequencies below the Maximum Usable Frequency (MUF).
This is not a DX antenna.
Needs to use an antenna tuner for good match.
Power Limited to about 200 Watts.
Beverage Mode Losses limit achievable gain.
