I'm giving some thought to buying a "sparkplug" antenna.  Well its just the matching unit but the size, performance and even the price seem decent based on reviews.

Anyone here have/tried one?

Interesting. I had to Google it up. I's an end-fed half-wave, so no doubt about performance, whi will be very good..

I got Bulgaria LZ3FA from Texas using the sparkplug antenna and 5 watts.

Excellent! I guess the solar cycle is slowly coming back!

I was looking for a battery the other day in a backpack and found five antennas I forgot I built.  The sparkplug is nestled in with my Yaesu FT-817nd and works wonderfully.  You just have to cut the wire correctly.
