A must in every HF shack
If you want to work DX you need a low radiation angle and a vertical antenna does just that. I bought this Antenna from Norham Radio (now Radioworld) and is over 20 years old. Covers the 4 bands without a tuner. I set it up with 8 radials and have worked all states on 40 and 20 and over 235 countries. This is my antenna recommendation for every ham.
