    Anyone have experience or opinion of this antenna? I want to get back into 2 meter SSB.
    Seems to have an unusual feed point.

    Any input will be greatly appreciated. I want to get back on 2 meter SSB.

    Thanks,

    Loop fed yagis aren't so new and they certainly work.

    Try it!:)

    If your interest is specifically SSB, take note that the standard version of this antenna is setup for the FM segment of the band. Make certain to custom order one for the SSB band segment of interest.

    Have you seen this somewhere?

    It covers 2 Mhz, usually from 144.0 up to 146.0 MHz

    This design is from Justin G0KSC. You can see the original design here

    EAntenna bought the rights from Justin to produce (and sell) the antenna. Actually EAntenna belomgs to WIMO.
    BTW WIMO produces all the antennas for Justin G0KSC too, under his brand Innovantennas.

    You can see the antenna detils from WIMO here

    Manual is available too.

    My usual friendly reminder that SWR is not an indicator of primary antenna metrics.
    In any case, Justin recommends ordering a special version if outside of the design frequency range.

    Not sure if this is relevant, but I've got a 4 element LFA for 6m, and it's great.
