This weekend I had a chance to install GAP Eagle DX into it's permanent location. It's installed at top of 23 feet "tower" (chimney) and has a clear sky view (using 50 feet of LMR240 to TS-2000). SWR are more or less as advertised on all bands (tooks a bit tweaking/tuning to get there). I have compared Eagle performance with my home brewed New Carolina Windom installed about at 20 feet inside attic. I have tested long and short skips (like Madrid Spain, Canary island and Caribbeans, Mexico) The results were kind of not what I would expect. On 20 meters, 90% of the time Windom had on 1-2 S units better signal. 10% of a time Eagle was on par with Windom. On 10 meters, Eagle was 2 S units ahead of Windom (listening K4AIS beacon, very close to my QTH)... well this is might be encouraging but band is dead for now. (Or may be my home brewed Windom does not work at all on 10 meters) Eagle was a bit less noisy - well, may be because signal level was down against Windom and location was further away from house power lines. Speaking about low angle of radiation for verticals: Aruba gave me 58 on Windom and 57 on Eagle - so it's about the same. I was thinking that Eagle would have a better transmitting performance for DX station because of lower take off angle but it does not look to be happened. Well, it was a pretty much educational experience (I'm trying to justify for myself amount of money spent on commercial antenna ). The postulate "Size does matter" stays true (Windom is 66 feet of wire and Eagle is 21 feet of aluminum tubing). The other postulate is - "eham's reviews needs to be filtrated thoroughly".
