This is fully compatable with all radios from the tube type of the 1920's to todays CPU 2014 solid state radios and FLEX-5000 Software Defined Radios as stated from a happy customer. Marine Radios as well, No ground radials required as it has an Internal built in Current path! Note: This may not out perform a Full Sized 1/4 or 1/2 wave perfectly tuned mono-band vertical tuned at that band with a good ground radial system. This antenna is about convenience and ease of use and will perform very well with good all band broad band matching without a tuner or ground radials.

One may ask, how does this antenna handle ICE STORMS & WIND? Here is a letter from a customer and this is what he has to say about that. So I tagged on this old one. Well I wanted to tell you about some of mother natures wrath. Your Antenna has survived, with no apparent damage, 1, 65 mph straight line wind; 1, 75 mph gust front; and a 2 inch ice storm that reeked havoc on my trees.
I will attempt to add some pics of the ice storm. You can blow it up and note your antenna, a 6m Ham stick putting up a good fight. But the 2m antenna was pulled apart (antenna on the right). I figured maybe all this could be a product endorsement. The item "All Band multiband HF Vertical antenna Ham Radio Amateur US Patented" is in sale since Wednesday, March 02, 2016.
