Interesting. MFJ and others have a lot of similar products, but they are all 1 band. To me the most unique thing is that the telescoping part collapses from 3.5' down to just 6". The 3/8"-24 mounting stud seems too beefy.
I'm having a hard time envisioning making any 20meter contacts on an antenna 1.2meters tall, but then, the MFJ Hamsticks I use on my car work great and they are only about 2.25meters long and mounted 3/4meter below the roof.

The MFJ-16010 will do it too !

I normally use EFHW antennas for all my portable ops with a 28ft fiberglass pole, but they are all mono band, so I got this idea to make a multi band 20,40 meter EFHW using these traps from, http://www.sotabeams.co.uk/pico-traps-kit-pair/ I understand how to tune the traps, but I'm not clear on how to determine where to place the trap on the wire. I assume being as I want to use it on 20 and 40, that it needs to be approximately 66 feet long total length, but where do I insert the 20 meter trap, at 33 feet? I have done a lot of searching, but have not found a definitive answer on how to figure it. Do I build the 20 meter section first with the trap at the end and tune it to length, then add the 40 meter section? Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you. I wish we had 60m here in France...
