Customer Reviews for the AV-18AVQII.

From: Jerry A. Wells wa0fxt
I installed a ground-mounted 18avq11 on a 1 1/2" pipe 6 feet in the ground. coax connector is appx 8" above ground,and I installed NO radials at all. Made a coil of coax 8" in diameter, about 10 turns, and adjusted all the bands for mid-band phone freqs. I'm running a Yaesu FT950 barefoot ( 100 )watts and have had excellent results with this antenna. . On most days can work coast to coast on 40 meters, and on 20 meters have worked Bermuda , and New Zealand. Not uncommon to hear Italy, Germany, and ocassionally Cuba and the South Pacific. Lots of trees in my location. I'm hoping the thing works even better when the leaves are off the trees. If you are wary of a multi-band vertical, don't be. This one is well worth the money!

From: Ken Sherrets K0BNL
I have the AV18AVQ II ground mounted and it works fantastic on all the advertised bands. I do not have to use a tuner when you cut and tune this to the frequencies used most often. A trimmer or built-in autotuner will handle this just fine. Of course if you use a linear and get out to the band edges you will want to add a tuner so you get the best performance from your linear, radio and antenna. I use only 3 buried ground rods and 3 ground radials each cut for 10, 20 and 40m. This is THE Best antenna purchase I have ever made. It works well on local, inter-state and DX too with most contacts made on 100 watts or less.
