Excellent, OM.

Now, go to the ham board and tell all the 'experts'- "Told you so!".

Then, they will fill 5 more pages with how much of your transmitter power is turning into heat, how foolish you are for choosing that antenna, how much better your signal 'would have been' if you had used blah, blah, blah...

I'm actually going to collect more information first so they can't claim 40m is the only band my antenna will Tx on.  :P

Actually I'm gonna rip them a new one! I've been hitting DX on 10m, & 20m, lots of 600-1800 mile chat on 40m, and my nightly net check-ins on 75m west coast. This IS A QUIET ANTENNA, and a Good performer, matching at least equal to all barefoot incoming signals and equal to one pushing 600 watts.
