Hi, everybody. I was wondering if any of you ten meter and cb
radio operators have used/use this antenna? For those of you that have no idea what this antenna is, it is a 5/8 wave vertical that is quite broadbanded, and its frequency range is from 25.5-30 Mhz with a 2.0 SWR in that entire range. In the past, I have had good luck with various verticals for ten meters...the Cushcraft AR-10, and the MaCO V58 for CB
use. However, at least in my experience and without using a tuner, I was never able to use either antenna on BOTH 10 meter band AND the Citizen's Band. The best I got was around a 1 Mhz bandwidth at 2.0 SWR or less.
--I realize the antenna is not cheap, but if it can cover 26.965-27.405 Mhz, and also 28-29.700Mhz with just one antenna, it just might be worth it (then I can use my antenna tuner for various wire antennas, etc.). So, has anyone on this forum used one yet? Are the broadbanded claims I see on YouTube true? Thanks for your help.
