The Dual driven elements give virtually 1:1 SWR over a wide bandwidth, ideal if you like operating either end of the band. The pattern is very clean with good gain. So far running just 100 Watts I have worked over 40 countries with it whilst on holiday.
I mount it on a stackable 20ft 1 1/4 inch mast that I tie wrap to the balcony railings at the Villa, it is so lightweight it's no hassle to put up and stays put even in the strong winds on the Algarve coast.
All in all a great antenna for either home or portable use.
