[TowerTalk] Hy-gain Explorer 14
Mon, 2 Oct 2000 00:37:10 EDT
I have had my Explorer 14 on the air for about 10 years. It is a
Great front to back and a real DX performer. Many a time I have topped
some of the larger beams or at least equaled them. Short beam with long
was computer designed by HyGain.
I think the 40 mtr and 30 mtr add on for the 14 is not only ugly but adds too
much windload to be worthwhile. I would not recommend that option.
One last thing...........when I turn the beam from deadon to the side
I often disappear to a station and when the back swings around to them it can
often be a difference from 20 over (from headon) to S5 off the back!! Yes!
I hope that MFJ keeps up the Explorer 14 quality and tradition.
Good luck Tom!
