I have had my 2016 up for 5 years now maintenance free. Easy to assemble just follow the instruction measurements and the SWR's will be fine. Went through the hurricane here in Corpus Christi with no problems. I have talked all over the U.S., Canada, into the U.K. and Hawaii all barefoot. Very pleased all around great base antenna. Top is at 40'.

This little pig works like a champ no joke. I had a Moonraker 4 back in the 80’s. Just got the old radio going again and this is my antenna. I have spoken to Australia, all through the United States, Jamaica, Baja California you name it, this thing works and hears like a champ. It’s on a 35’ telescoping pole up on a hill. My plan is to get a beam next but keep this for the local group contacts
I have this antenna up for both CB and 10 Meter, and SWR is perfect and locals I talk to say sound great, However not sure what I am doing wrong as I hear DX from Florida and Canada, but no one hears me.
I may add that its a very strong antenna as we just had 60mph wind gust and didn't effect it at all.

These are great antenna's.I have co/phased these up which really works great too.They hold their value well.We paid this 10 years ago too.They are way better then any fiberglass antenna you can buy on the market.
