That setup is C-L-E-A-N. Hope it sounds as good as it looks! You'll do fine when the next DX cycle starts up. Can't beat the old Realistic TRC-458 sets. :)

Thanks I have did some dx last weekend and had very good reports from every one I talked to they said it was very clear and sounded great
Nice base setup and good antenna. Set one up for a local of mine and he loves it!! I have talked to a quite few guys in Northern Minnesota and Minnesota itself, when the DX was rolling. 8113 is who I remember most. We may have spoken if you had the antenna up for a while.
222 Daytona Bach., FL,
Saying 73 and God Bless
Again nice setup and hope we may get to speak one day if conditions allow!!

The Sirio 2016 antenna rocks ! Replaced an Imax 2K with it and never looked back. They can handle some serious power too if you decide to grow ;)

Mine has the special white fuzzy coating on the aluminum pseudo ground plane radials for better output radiation angles...
