Adding radials makes a big difference. Adding just six 26ft radials made a big difference - it equalled the dipole and Windom and actually beat them at times. Where the wire radials meet the ground attach those ends of each wire radial along this circle, with equal spacing. Shipment due very early December! When is the next equivalent cycle expected?
One respondent said that when the wind blew I am getting back into Ham Radio after 40 years passing. All parts are made of stainless steel, except the wires. Same as the MO-1 but folds at the roof line, 27" above the base for bumper mounting. Still not happy with it; all the comments on difficulty tuning, requiring radials to work and lots of them , are all true.
Hustler 4BTV m vertical, 6. This vertical seems to work great. But please do not forget the radials. So keep laughing, while I keep enjoying the antenna and my ALH. Very please so far and good enough for my needs. I have never run that particular vertical, but I have run the butternut version a couple times over the years and it worked well for me. Doing so will reduce the radiation angle and will also reduce detuning of the antenna downwards in frequency.
