Customer Reviews for the MFJ-1621.

From: Milton J. Long WA8LDR

In September of last year I purchased a MFJ-1621 portable antenna from Ham Radio Outlet.



I purchased a ICOM 718 Tranceiver so that I could get back on the air.



Since I live in a condo where outside antennas are not allowed I was able to install the 1621 above the garage area where it would not show from the exterior.



I have been a HAM since 1963 but had not been active since 1985 so getting back on the air was a major doing. My brother in law Harold Littell WA8MRT was the pushing force behind getting back on the air.



I operate mostly on 40 meters and since going back on the air I have been able to work over 26 states from Florida to Wisconsin with no problems. I have worked mobiles in North Carolina and Texas.



Just wanted to let you know how happy I am with the MFJ-1621 as my base station antenna. If I see you folks at the Dayton Hamfest I will shake your hand.



I may go mobile on 40 meters and if I do I will be looking at an MFJ Enterprises Antenna, you can bet on that.



So, thanks for having such a great product that really works. I think you should do away with the word \"portable\" because it is truly a great base station antenna for people with limited means both in cost and space.



Sincerely,
Milton J. Long WA8LDR

First of all,i\'m commenting on the 1620(an earlier version).
I like it. Is it as good as a full size dipole? No.
However used it with a Ten Tec Scout with gratifying results.
Worked many stations and a station in Poland from a first floor motel room.
Adjusting it is easy;Often tuning by receiver noise was sufficient otherwise tuning w/built in F.S. meter was just fine.
Cautions:Don\'t alter feed line length or allow feedline to cross over itself. \'Serpentine\' is OK.
I also have an MFJ 40 mtr. cub(2 watts) and plan to qso w/the 1620,just for the heck of it.Haven\'t tried yet.
Truly impressive for its size.
I have no financial interest in MFJ!

I purchased this antenna hoping I would be able to get out on one of the bands. Well I am blown away at the performance of this antenna/field strentgh meter. I have been using it on 40 & 20 and have made many contacts with fair to good reports. It does not work too well indoors because of RF and the supplied coax needs to be let out on the ground as your radial. Overall this antenna is worth every bit of 99 dollars and performs as MFJ says it will. Good job to MFJ.

From my Condo on the 17 floor in Myrtle Beach North this product has enabled me to get on the air with a great signal. Its small footprint is almost undetectable.

From: Tom W8AAZ
Reviewing it from the receiving end. A guy in an appt. two states over was on 40M this morning with one of these. Running 100W SSB inside the appt. he was a solid S9 most of the time. Said he has worked a alot of DX with it. So perhaps there is more than meets the eye here!

From: Joe Powell KE7OPK
For me, me the magic was in getting the coax way up off the floor. Using picture hangers, it is strung on the wall, high up, except where it drops down to the SWR meter or the antenna box. I got a 57N from WA, and I live in Las Vegas, NV. Never made a contact until I raised the feedline up. It is fully extended; the radio is in one end of the apt, the ant. is in the other on a nightstand. This really surprised me the with little effort, my new deployment worked so well.
