|Customer Reviews for the MFJ-1775.|
|From: Bill Hudock kb4sqv|
|I have used this antenna for about a year now and am very pleased with the results. I curently have it installed on a metal push up pole above a aluminum sun room about 25 foot high.|
I am able to rotate it by hand and it does a good job of nulling out interfering signals.
I assembled this nice antenna by myself and mounted also with out assistnce. It does take some deication to tune it up but well worth the time. I used heavy gauge clothes line wire to make my adjustments then plan on making my final cuts with the MFJ hardware.
If one wishes to work the lower bands I would recommend the 80/40/20 meter model, as this one goes up to 2m.
I am looking forward to spending many hours working Dx with this compact antenna.

|MFJ-1775 was excellent antenna and using it 4 years already. I install 10 meter high with Yaesu G-250 rotator. This antenna doing well especially during dx'ing and contest. If MFJ can upgrade this rotary dipole with add in 80 Meter band will be great.|

|I have owned this antenna for four months and it has been through two nasty hail storms and did not receive any damage at all! I have it mounted on a thirty foot mast pole and it does quite well. I have made contact into Russia, Peru, and the Caribbean Islands with 5-7 to 5-9 reports consistently. This antenna is not easy antenna to cut to operating frequency and I highly recommend using an antenna analyzer to tune it properly but once tuned, put it up in the air and get to talking. This antenna is light but extremely durable. I was skeptical at first but I use it all the time on a net which I am a controller on and get reports from all over. I am truly impressed with the overall performance of this antenna and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a budget wise antenna. 73, de KD7DLE, Billings, MT |MFJ-874WATTMETER, 1.8-525 MHZ, 200 W$109.95
