I have installed the linear loaded F12 40 M antenna. Tried to keep it up for
a couple of years before trashing it and buying the CC XM240.

No amount of work seemed be enough to keep the F12 antenna up.  I even hired
a crane a twice to come out and lift me up to try to get it to tune
properly, never worked even close to what is advertised.  The linear loading
wires broke several times too.  The antenna was junk in my opinion...and
this is coming from a tried and true F12 advocate. I still have the C3 up
for 15 years and works like a champ. The XM240 is a winner, put it up and it

    I've installed a number of the F12 linear  loaded antennas and NO ONE
has ever said to me that it was a 'great' antenna.  I've always thought that
the CC 2L shorty forty is the best bang for the buck on  40M. Maybe the
newer F12 versions with coils would be an  improvement.
