    The video shows, that a portabel shack, reduced to the minimum, can be powerful enough.

    Tengo JPC-12 y funciona muy bien, estoy esperando a que JPC-7 comience a probar.

    Nice looking antenna; looks sort of Mil-Spec 'ish.

    Life's too short for QRP operations and cheap Chinese hammy radios. JK, sort of.

    But if you can't catch any fish with it, maybe you'll still catch some dx?

    I activated park K-7839 in Illinois today and with that same antenna you used in the video and 20 watts with a Xiegu G90 made contacts as far as Alaska and Hawaii, I was impressed.

    I installed one on the back of my Jeep for a POTA activation this past summer.

    Obviously, it can't be used while moving. What I did was I used an existing 3/8" stud mount and used a stainless 3/8 bolt to secure a small piece of flat aluminum to the stud mount. I then got a 12mm 1.5 nut and bolted the takedown mast pole through the aluminum plate. Then I assembled the rest of the antenna and screwed it into the bottom section.

    It worked well, tuned up with SWR below 2:1 across the whole 20m band.

    It's in my profile page at the very bottom. Not sure why it won't display here.

    Odd, I see it in original post now. Is there any additional counterpoise?

    Does anyone round here have a JPC-7? I've been looking at the JPC-12 and it seems well made, but the JPC-7 kit is on special offer round here - less than twice the price of the JPC-12 and including a good tripod. I don't think I would be able to use it as a dipole most of the time - can a JPC-7 be deployed as a vertical, using just one half of the dipole? If so, I would go for that, giving me the option of the dipole when time and space permit...
