I saw some rewiews on eham and most of the responses were that it was a decent performer and operated like a mobile HF installation.

Mark,

I think that this antenna has a balun inside the small box and therefore it needs an antenna tuner to have SWR 1:1 for HF. A friend of mine who bought it, tested along with me in a distance 10km and the results were not so good. After all, it's not THE magic antenna...
