I have absolutely no doubt that any form of bug-catcher will outperform a Hustler. Ken Kopp - K0PP. As K0BG points out above, the vinly covering WILL leak and then retain water, further adding to the already-high losses due to the phenolic forms. Resonator whip adjustment allows for the fine tuning of these efficient mono-band mobile antennas to the lowest SWR. That was with the smaller sized 40M resonator attached. But, that doesn't help the poor ham that already has one and has not been apprised that this can happen.
This is because if you put more than one resonator on the mast, HF performance starts to suffer, especially at the lower end of the spectrum. A word to the wise… don't get caught up in a hobby which can result in your losing your property or getting sued for hurting someone on the roadway because of a faulty resonator. Suppose Hustler heard of a few of these huge 80 meter resonators breaking and beefed them up? I found the reference I was thinking of.
About 30 years ago I used the same setup without any problem. I couldn't bring myself to pass them off on anyone I like. And I'm not surprised about the response you got from them. I continue to be amazed at the blind loyalty to Hustler coils! I use meter resonators with long shaft.
What about the other bands though? In stock , shipped in 1 or two days. All of the system is above roof level and I use 12 feet of RG cable which is easy to run. How does one run more than watts mobile and still meet RF exposure guidelines? And I'm not surprised about the response you got from them. Customer Reviews There are no customer reviews yet. I have the 20m super resonator, and yes, it does have below 2.
