HF VERTICAL ANTENNA COMET CHA-250B HK5FCI on 2/5/13
It works. I was surprised how I got out on 160 meters. I live in the Baltimore, MD. area and can talk to Hams in Penna. 20 meters is the strongest I think. Along with 17 meters & 15 meters. It works on 40 and 75/80 meters they can hear you. I've worked DX with the antenna. Italy, Germany, and England. Cuba and Puerto Rico and Spain and U.S. Virgin Islands and Nova Scotia. This is a compromise antenna, it will get you on the air, nothing spectacular as your are limited to 250 watts. Mine has held up in the strongest wind and was easy to put up, I did it myself. It costs nearly $500, pricey. Pay attention as to the height you erect it according to instructions. Eddie Briggs KB3IKD Dundalk, Maryland
