So, what happens AFTER we get the license?

And here's my GAP Titan DX vertical on a 40' steel pipe - no coils at all... :(

I've heard a lot of good about this antenna, and even considered buying it. The problem is that it is everything but discreet... Maybe if I paint it green... Then, if I move, it's not easy to transport (how long is the box?).

How about the Carolina Windom?

My second attempt erecting my antenna to 32' was going pretty well - until the SWR test showed waaayyy too much - so while I was tweaking it (raised/lowered height of coax/antenna head and repositioning the legs of the inverted V for 80m and 15m) I got it down to 1:1.7...and while I was walking back to the antenna mast - I hear this sickening ccccrrrraaaaccckkkk!

Then the visual came into view...as the masthead bounced off the fence...

...so much for those cheap 4' military fiberglass poles...arrrggghhh!
If you're looking for me, you're probably looking in the wrong place.

Geez! Glad I didn't buy them! I was going to...
They have aluminum ones...

This antenna has been on the top of my "Wow I Really Want One Of These" list for quite some time. Right now, I'm using a W5GI Mystery Antenna-style multiband dipole with a tuner. How do you like the Titan DX, if you don't mind me asking?

Don't waste your money on the fiberglass poles, Gil. This was my 2nd attempt!

Do yourself a favor, save a few more bucs and buy the aluminum poles!

Love it. I've had it for two years with no problems whatever.
