Install for either horizontal/directivity pattern ( as picture above )...
or vertical orientation for omnidirectional coverage...
... use a 90* 'elbow' on the mast to rotate 90 degrees
to change orientation for time varying:
1. propagation condx
2. skip distance to the station
3. incoming signal polarity
4. best antenna pattern on the working band
( Folks by two antennas...putting one horizontal, the other vertical...
and switch to the best signal )
Power tested - at resonant frequency -
to 1000 CW watts key down for 30 seconds
and 1400 Watts PEP
...no heat sensed on antenna wire or coax feedpoint when touched by hand after power tesing
NO lossy matching components anyplace in system
Low SWR across resonant band
Sturdy and well built
Windy at your QTH?...folks reporting theirs OK in 75 MPH wind gusts!!
Supplied as kit - Easy assembly - less than 90 minutes
