Good vertical antenna gmfoley on 21/10/21
Hi, I was fortunate enough to find a Butternut HF-9V, the radial plate and several hundred feet of radial wire on craiglist for a couple hundred dollars. The antenna did take about 3 days of cleaning to get the paint of of it. I'm running a FTDX-10 with no amplifier mostly on FT-8 and have reached almost 10,000 miles never at or near my radios max power. New it is expensive at around $750 and it isnt an antenna I would purchase without an antenna analyzer as it's a bear to tune. i spent days on it but I can go from band to band without antenna tuner with the exception of 17m and 12m which does need atu help.
