My personal experience at XZ0A was that the Bevs worked extremely well on
the island.  However, I did try one at a secluded, isolated spot along the
shore where in some places at high tide the salt water was under the
element.  That one did NOT work.

For photos of the DXped including the working Bevs in the jungle foilage, go
to and select XZ0A Slide Show.  The RX antenna photos
begin at # 115 and include the famous heliport "LOW" dipole which performed
so fabulously on the SE arriving skew angle signals at sunset.
