    The MP1 is a class act, quality hardware and I like the frequency guide card for coil sizing.

    On the Wander Lead I got one to use as my Pickup's HF/CB antenna replacing a 4-1/2 foot fire-stick. Worked many Special Event stations while driving with it on my FT-891.

    When parked at a park or other outdoor setting, I replace it with a 17-1/2' Telescopic Whip on top of a Wolf Coil on the 3/8-24 mount in the stake-bed mount.

    On longer stays I put a MyAntenna's 9:1 End Fed up in a tree also.

    Yeah I don't know what to say about that Wonder thing :) anyway, like with any vertical antenna the counterpoise makes all the difference.

    Have you tried the hamstick dipole? Ive had good luck with that in lieu of countetpoise. Vertical 40m dipole.

    I have the original mp1 dipole version I paid about $200 for that made lots of contacts qrp with my Yaesu ft817nd. I don’t understand why the new non dipole version costs more than what I paid for mine on that basis I could get back what I paid for mine plus some !!!

    I have, and with good results. Even tried the Lazy L and horizontal dipole config with the MP1.

    How does it compare to the super antenna. Im considering buying just the mp1c . Or is it worth buying the one with the super wip? They sell it 2 ways. I have a stake mount already so im not sure if the collapsible wip is better?

    I'm not sure what you mean by a stake mount. Anyway just look at the pictures on their website, compare those two they compatible things you have already, then get what you need. Fhd super slider uses 3/8-24 female on both ends.
