this has been a gret antenna for me had it about 40 feet to the tip and a 2980 and dx350 and that was an awsome setup but about a month ago we got a bad wind storm and blew it down (the pipe broke not the ant.) now i need to get a new one and will probably be this again i would never be afraid of another one it is a great antenna for the price and i would recomend it to anyone any day

I have had one of these in the air for over 20 years. Yeah the glass starts giving out after 10 years or so, got past this by sealing it with heat shrink tubing.

dont let the price and the bad rap fool you this is a good ant. maybe the old ones did stink and yes the 9.9 db gain is a joke. id say more like 2 db maybe three, but i put my up it worked great good swr right out of the box no need to adjust it. seems to be built better than the old antron a99 i have seen. good price on copper too even with shipping it was less than my local ham / cb shop. hey copper throw in the ground plane kit and 50 ft of feed line make a package deal at a bit of a discount. vs. buying singe items and i bet these things would fly outta your stock room!
