    This video includes the unboxing, assembly, testing and review of the Cobweb MFJ-1835H antenna (H for the 1.5kW high power version). Too bad the condition of the bands were not good that day, I will make another video when we have better conditions.

    I noticed after I posted the video online that at 7:31 my shack radio (TS-990) is in USB not in AM like the Elad QRP outside. The TS-990 would have read a better signal in AM but not much (2 to 3dB max, just tested on the same frequency), so the signals are still similar. Sorry, my mistake.

    True this antenna is perfect for field day. Don't tight the screws too much if you are dismantling it after, otherwise you can damage the wire (I did on the first band, 10M) and keep the wire bags as they are identified. 73 and have fun, hope the conditions will be better than now!

    Thanks for the feedback. I work for a telecommunication company, I had no experience in video production when I started making ham radio videos in 2015. I discover a new hobby. I still makes a lot of mistakes, sometimes I able to correct it in post-production and sometimes I can't, hihi. All my videos are in 4k resolution, this represent a technical challenge, that's the whole purpose ;-) I made my first documentary in fall and posted online this winter, in 4K. Check it out and let me know what you think. By the way I’m located nearby Montreal. 73 Pascal VA2PV

    I do not have such a good condition to set up a large antenna system, only use MFJ-1788X, so very envious of you!
