|Customer Reviews for the MFJ-1890.|
|From: Bill K3XA|
|I purchased this antenna to attempt to work Zone 26 on ten meters from my QTH in Virginia. Assembly was quick and easy and the antenna displayed good directivity and gain. I placed the antenna at 24 feet above ground and shortly thereafter, I completed a QSO with XV1X, Vietnam in Zone 26. This little antenna is a good performer and value. |

|I like to keep my base operations at home on the "stealth" side, even thought I don't have an extremely restrictive situation.|
The Moxon antenna is light weight ans smaller than a regular 10 meter beam, PLUS 10 is my favorite band.
The antenna went together fairly easily (2 people) and it goes up just fine on tv type mast. It does just what it is supposed to do, gives me a little boost in directional transmit power.
It's a very lightweight antenna, and I have had to make adjustments from time to time BUT it's very easy to take the antenna up and down.
Although I have not taken this antenna on a portable operation, I do believe it could be partially disassembled and transported in a pickup truck or van to a portable location.
The Moxon does just what it promises to do in a lightweight and compact package.

|The antenna went together pretty easily, and turns easily with a TV rotor. I mounted it at 17 feet and the following weekend worked 103 countries on it in the CQWW CW contest. I have never done DXCC in a contest before, even when using all bands and a Cushcraft MA5B. Worked about 120 10m counties on it in 4 months. Highly recommended for small space situations. |
