Quotes from Users…
“Loop was ‘2 S Units Up’ on the 2 Ele Yagi and my first contact was 5/9+5 both ways into Brazil with only 80 watts.”
– Trevor 26DX015 (England, UK)

“Hi Steve – Antenna very well made and works very well. At 4 foot bove the ground I was working the USA and Russia at 5/5 when setting the antenna up. Now antenna is only 5m above ground as my QTH is not ideal, I was working 5/9 to the USA and Brazil with only 50w.. thank you Steve for a great antenna – 73 Roy 26LC046 – Lincoln UK

“Beautifully made with superb fittings. Could not be bettered unless gold-plated. Appreciated the silicone paste which is expensive and hard to come by locally. Also the packet of spares. NO OTHER manufacturer offers these two items”
– G Potter (Perth, Western Australia)

“I used it for 26AT/000 & managed to work N & S America with some great signals. The materials used are very high quality & strong, the use of square box section for the boom makes a much stronger job than the usual round tube. All of the hardware is of a good quality & supplying the alu – slip is a nice touch for use on the nut’s & bolts etc. The supplied instructions are very informative & the photo’s are also very useful.”
– Colin 26AT035 (England, UK)
