New Grasshopper vertical
« on: August 26, 2012, 10:10:10 PM »
this one is made in my local area, 29 feet tall, aircraft stainless steel/aluminum, and collapses to just over 8 feet for transport, loads on all bands except 160 and just over 200 bucks, dying to try it

I can tune a 29 foot vertical on 160M at least one of my tuners,

I find the rising popularity of vertical HF antennas interesting, I suspect it is the availability of DSP in the radios that makes the verticals as usable as they are.

Fat Clyde, I will try to post a pic this weekend, I am working dark to dark now. Spacecase it is ideal because of my limited space.
