I received this antenna a couple days ago and forgot how light this thing is made very well receive and transmit is good on it and it is also really big to buy other than that I am satisfied with it thank you copper and maco. 73s 361 east texas
This is a very well constructed antenna, have not seen many antennas like this since the late 1970's in terms of being a 5/8 wave well constructed with some good ground plain radials. If you want a good antenna for the price then this is it. It will last you most of your life and maybe on-wards to the next generation. The power handling capability is sufficient for what most of us will ever use. Beats an Antron hands down! And for nearly the same price.
I especially like the feed point matching network. Its an awesome antenna!

I bought this antenna back in 1991. it survived two hurricanes. I have never had any problems with it. its my # 1 antenna. i well buy another one and keep it as a replacement if this one ever fails. but i have a feeling that my son well get it. this is the best antenna you can buy. it might not be the best looking one but i well take performance over looks any day. you got a good thing going MACO. Keep making them please. And COPPER keep saleing them.

I recieved my Alpha V-5/8 antenna on 12-19-07 ,The 9' Ground radials are so long.
The antenna is coupled with 100' 8-x mini and a S.W.R. of 0.2,normal channel.
The upper radial is over 20' tall. The center ring is 18'' around.
The antenna is like a tower over the house. Man it's Big. I can hear people talking 45 miles
easily. The way they couple the power and ground is a swirling motation.
It is by far the best of the best . I would Buy again & again.
On upper 40 swr is 1.4 ch 37 ,0.9 on ch 4. Lower is 1.4 ch 37, Bends good 5/5 John Morman
