MaxOptimizer allows you to choose between a balanced 10 -11 meter antenna that will perform well in both bands or optimize the antenna for the 11 meter band.
To Optimize for 11 meter performance assemble the antenna with the 12” optimizer section installed between the mid and top section as a 4 piece antenna.
For balanced 10-11 meter performance leave out the 12” optimizer section and assemble as 3 piece antenna.
Antenna rated at 5000 Watts

I bought this antenna in the year 2000. Now 22 years old. I have used it on CB and Ham radio. On ham radio it does a great job on 17 meters. Cost in 2000 from Copper was $68. Can't go wrong with this Antenna. 5/8 wave antenna will do a little better than the A - 99 which is a half over a quarter wave. The 2000 is really 0.64 . Close enough for 5/8 wave. If you are looking for a great antenna and easy to put together, this is it.

EXCELLANT antenna last one lasted 14 years. But beware this antenna will tune up fine even when it has deteriorated over several years. Give it seven to ten years and then retire it. Whips like a wet noodle in the wind but survives! AMAZING! Coppers is the only place to buy it if you want it quickly and for the right price. Ordered one from a Walmart drop shipper took 3 weeks to ship. Took 3 days to ARRIVE from Coppers. Thanks!
great antenna my 2000 has been up for 4 years no problems. have had 60 mile winds so far so good

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
