Charlie Tango DX is a group dedicated to Hobby Radio Users in all forms, whether CB, Amateur, PMR446, Scanning and Short Wave Listening.
We are a very active and friendly group that welcomes anyone from anywhere in the world who has an interest in Radio, regardless of their level of experience, their equipment, their location, or their radio preference.

The CT Site contains many reviews, tips and modifications within the forums, and we take pride that no sensible question is ever left unanswered, and nobody is ever belittled or mocked for asking an honest question, no matter how simple it may seem. We were all new to the hobby once.

Thinking of committing sacrilege and buying a home base antenna, these get a good press, anyone using one ?

I had the 2012 version with 12 ground planes many years ago. Fantastic antenna and much higher performance than a typical end-fed 1/2 wave.

I Am Running the 2016 it's a good all round 5/8 antenna I get good report's on average between s7-9+ over 10 miles s5-s7 over
20 miles s3-s5 over 50 miles running 10-20w the more I run the better audio would be over 20+ Miles but I did not see much more
Then 1-2s points increase if I ran more than 50w or more. I will say this though I used to run the serio 847 but it broke it did
Preformed better than the 2016 but not by much maybe 1-2s point at best and was more wide banded than the 2016 and would
Tune down to the 40m band hope this helps :wave:
