I purchased two of these whips in order to make a 6 meter dipole antenna. I put the two whips on a dipole mount. I was extremely surprised that the SWR on 6 meters (50.125Mhz - SSB) was 1.2!!
The whips were not as thick as I thought they would be and with some effort can be bent. So do be careful. Still they do take some punishment. I purchased a set of Ferrules in which to place the whips and then into the mount. You can't go wrong getting these whips.
Oh, I almost forgot, AmericanRadioSupply.com ships these antennas in a long PVC pipe, which I use to store the antennas when not in use. Great Idea!
Excellent quality and fast shipping.
My second time dealing with American Radio Supply and they hit it out of the park again. Thankyou.
