"What a marked difference and improvement", my mate on the mainland said when I spoke to him on 10 meters sideband last night. All I've done is added my Tristar radial groundplane to the antenna set-up on the car. It was sitting in my box room gathering dust up until Friday. I'd remembered what a change it had made when I had CB's and thought to myself, what can I do (without a burner) to improve things? Well worth the money: I've had mine a while and paid just under a tenner....I see Thunderpole do them for just over a ten pound note. Worth EVERY penny!!! :D
