Wide band width and high power handling capabilities

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!

I use the I-max on 10 meters and I have the ground plane kit with it. The ground plane kit doesn't work on 15-17-20 meters very well but it's absolutely the big dog on 10 meter ham. I use a Kenwood ts480hx and when the band is open it gets the job done. I dialed the tune rings up to the top and see is right where it needs to be. This is a great vertical antenna for 10 meters and is pretty tough customer on 11 meters too. Your antenna is the key part of your station. You can have really nice high end radio equipment; without a good antenna it won't work very well for you. 73 k5ewm
I bought this antenna back in the year 2000. Still have it. Long lasting antenna. Got good reports when I had it up. Also used it on ham radio. Does a good job on 17 meters.
