Year round use, 12 months; Portable HF FMJ Antenna
I purchased this as an antenna I could take up to the cabin when I spend time up there. In the meantime I have it set up outside the window at the house. It has performed flawless even with the terrible location at home. I am in between 3 bluffs and on a small lot in the middle of a city. sing the 6 ft tripod it came with, I am still able to hit most of the USA. When I took it up to Northern Minnesota, in the woods, I was able to get out much farther then I even imagined. I talked with Italy, and all of the USA with no problem. Moving the NVIS wire, I was able to aim it wherever I wanted. A truly amazing antenna! Over the year plus that I have had it set up, there has been no downgrade in its performance. I have taken the whip apart and cleaned it a few times, adding dielectric grease to keep things protected. Comes apart easily and reassembles in a few minutes!
