      Description:

      This antenna is heavy duty and well made. I used 200 watts PEP and had no problem with SWR on any of the bands without using a tuner plus all the bands tune to 1.2 to 1 with my Kenwood TS-480HX. (Be careful to lineup the holes in each section for correct length! I used nuts and bolts when I disguised it as a flagpole! I’m including the standard mounting clamp hardware!)

      It was setup and operated in Boston for about 22 months.
      It is in Good Condition (GC) but the effects of age and/or the elements indicate that some of the aluminum is discolored but still structurally sound.

      Being a “Compromise Antenna” I’ve had descent success with it ground mounted at 1.5’ when it was disguised as a flagpole and at 10’ above the ground on the side of my condo. I've worked DX and state side stations. I don't get great reports, but it does work. As a “Stealth Flagpole Antenna” I was pleased with the performance from JTV680. I would not recommend it to someone who wants ideal performance, especially with the band conditions as they are in now. It does work well for a compromise antenna though. I’ve only worked 10 meter ground-wave yacking local hams plus a few contacts on 6 meters.
