You already have a Maco V-5000. Unless you bought an I-10K, you would be hard pressed to beat the Maco. The Sirio antennas are junk!

This antenna:



can be purchased for a LOT more money here:

I'm sure the Enforcer is built much better however.

i agree with MC for a change :twisted:
sirio antennas are mostly a pos only slightly better than cte/spectrum antennas,

the 827 is sirio's strongest/best performing 5/8 with a very thick base section, ( the original 827 was even thicker/stronger )
they do suffer from bad connections in the base section if you just use them as they come from the manufacturer, some noalox and sealant should sort that out,
dump the plastic joint pieces cut slits and fit hose clamps on the joints and they are a decent antenna,
probably stronger than the maco, definately stronger than the imax2000 but they aint no i10k ,

the tornado does not perform as well and they fall appart in the wind, i would stick with the v5000.

NEWS JUST IN :shock:
the tornado is not as it seems in the pic,
i used to own one years back and could have sworn it was like other 5/8 using tapped transformer at the base and 1/8wave radials but it aint,
i talked to a ham buddy tonight who is going to use one modded for the 6mtr shootout, while talking about the matching he informs me that uses an open circuit design unlike any of the tapped transformer setup,
at first he said no tapped coil and i thought he meant no coil at all, i did not agree with that and asked him to describe the exact setup as they definately had a coil,
heres what he said
the coax feeds the bottom of the coil with no shunt to ground no tapping it part way up, the antenna is open circuit not dc grounded like most 5/8 and 1/2wave antennas, its the second one hes had and they are identical, hes thinking of doing what A/S did with the sigma2 and the small internal coil so hes dc grounded.
