|Customer Reviews for the MFJ-1772B.|
|From: Alan Beadle KC2TND|
|Like I suppose others must be, I am annoyed by the lack of an adequate description (As of the writing of this review, at least) of this antenna.|
Don't get me wrong-this is really an excellent portable antenna, but I think that many of MFJ's products could use better descriptions.
It's a FOLDED dipole with a resistor-matching network to achieve a near- 50-ohm match at the feedpoint. It does not have a balun built-in, and lacks provisions to connect a balanced feedline. I just use RG-58 and put 7 turns of a diameter of 5" near the feedpoint, and it works quite well.
I'm actually very happy with this antenna, but I wish MFJ were better about their online descriptions of products. I use this antenna with QRP power levels, and get excellent results.
