Wide band width and high power handling capabilities

I like this antenna. Works very well. No ground planes and about a 1:3 match with 200 watts. It's my local talk antenna. I live in the mountains of north east Washington state and we have a dozen or so operators but the distance between each of us is anywhere from 20 to 80 miles. No problem talking from Colville near the BC border to Spokane.t

I like the antenna just fine but have a high swr, has anyone else had this problem and if do what did you do to correct it.

Not sure how the manufacturer achieved this, but when this antenna is used in a horizontal configuration on 27.875 MHz LSB, it will receive transmissions from interstellar space. However, the incoming signals are not decipherable and are disguised as common atmospheric static.

I've had mine up for over 10 years now. No issues what so ever. At 36 foot a top of a tobacco barn.Have talked to new zealand on it. And it will do the rated power.
Would rate this a 10 for a all directional.73 s all.

Wife and I pulled antenna out of box, put it together in-less than 15 minute and SWR 1.0, talking on a RCI2950-DX with a Varmint-1000 and touching the distance of 90 miles. The 259 plug-in(bottom of antenna)is 30 foot off of ground. No Ear-kit. I-Max 2000 well-done!
