A Decision Made!

Posted on June 17, 2008 at 12:35 PM
After much deliberation I have finally decided on a Sandpiper vertical antenna for 6-80m inc the warc bands.  It is the V6+3 - the 3 being the warc.  This seems to be the ideal compromise between cost and performance/size etc.  Normally I don't like compromise, but short of moving QTH little choice this time.  Will hopefully not even be noticed by the neighbours.

Many thanks from both Martyn (MM3XXW) and Graeme (M0EUK) for their guidance, patience and honest appraisal of their respective Sandpiper verticals and answering all my queries - no matter how mundane - more importantly allaying any concerns that this antenna might not work.
