Band conditions have been tough running barefoot, but I have been working DX on 20 meters! DL, SM, YU, RU, ZS, TI all in a single morning with only 70 watts. In fact i have had so much fun being back on the air i have made the decision to replace my aging 30+ year old Kenwood with a new radio. I been pleased with the antenna and my neighbors have been pleased with the look of the flagpole.
I had almost given up on putting up any antenna that would allow contacts on 80 - 6 meters on this tiny mobile home lot. I have been heard all over the earth including Antarctica with 30 watts on FT8. Impressed by the quality of materials that this antenna is comprised of. Very pleased with the results! 73, phil KF6IF
The flagpole took approximately 3 hours to assemble and install (AFTER) I had already installed the PVC in a concrete base. The antenna with flag attached stood up very well during the recent tropical storm (with two tornadoes with in just a few miles). It is WELL manufactured and very strong. DE K3KZG
The antenna is out-standing (in my front yard). The company has resolved all of the complaints in my previous post and made some excellent changes to the product bundle. DE K3KZG
I installed the 20 foot Flagpole antenna in July. I had difficulty with connectors which I solved. It worked all bands, but the MFJ tuner failed 2 days after I had it working. It is still at MFJ getting a warranty repair (6+ weeks so far). Presently it is resonant on 20 meters and will tune 30 meters and 17 meters with only the Radio tuner. It is a beautiful Flagpole. I Keep it lighted at night. No complaints about appearance from the neighbors. I am regularly working Europe, South America. Africa and all of US with 60 watts on FT8 and CW. I have been able to work SSB contacts in Europe and South America on 20 meters as well. The antenna is an ideal solution for Hams in HOA communities. There are plenty of 20 foot flagpoles in my neighborhood. There is a code for them in the HOA handbook and our city Code as well. It meets all the requirements. It is a sturdy structure and looks like any other flagpole from 30 feet away or more. (Only difference is the bolts and the tuner). I have built a landscape block circle with 4 rows of stone. This effectively hides the tuner and balun at the base. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to do HF and lives in a restricted community. Andy WJ8B
My XYL and I realized it was time to downsize last summer. We relocated to North Carolina in January 2019 to a smaller home on a golf course in an antenna restricted HOA community. It was hard to leave a QTH with a couple of towers, low band transmit and receiving antennas for a tiny lot with antenna restrictions. Restrictions means no antenna allowed in English.
I wasn't ready to give up my ham radio, DX, and contesting additions. After searching around I found there were very few reasonable solutions. The one solution that stood out was the 20 foot flagpole antenna from Greyline Performance Antennas. So I bought one.
Jon Kimball KL2A at Greyline Performance Antennas, was very helpful throughout this process, answered all my questions, provided some needed advice, and was a large part of the reason I bought this antenna.
Fortunately, our HOA does allow flagpoles but limits them to 20 ft.
The longest pole in the installation tent was doing the paperwork and get permission to put up the flagpole. That took a month and a half. The next hardest part was digging a hole for the flagpole and a trench to bury the coax into the house so no traces of antenna connection was visible. Putting the antenna together was a matter of a couple of hours, going slow to ensure I didn't mess it up. But up it went on 9 May, yesterday.
It is a pleasure to be on the air again. There's no magic here. The flagpole antenna does not compare to the tower and beams at my last QTH. But I am on the air again. And that is priceless.
Running 100 watts yesterday and today enabled me to work a bunch of Europeans and South Americans on 20 and 40 meters with 100 watts. That's what I wanted and expected and that's what I got. I'm a happy ham.
I use the antenna with a LDG RT-600 remote tuner hidden adjacent to the flagpole. The antenna tunes easily on 80 through 6 meters. So far I am operating low power. I still need to run some AC to put my amplifier on line which will make a big dif...
