Wide band width and high power handling capabilities

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.

I've had my imax 2000 for about a month now and love it. from ground to tip its sitting 41 foot up and i can talk about 60 miles with out skip. I'm running a cobra 29 pushing a phantom 500 10 tube dead keying 50w swing 700w as long as u ground it good its a talking joker. i have 3 8 foot grounding rods run to it as a starter antenna i would recommend the imax.
