COMPACtenna The Spectrum Monitor May 2019 FRONT PAGE    By Bob Grove, W8JHD    “The prediction of signal flutter reduction was true as well;
when annoying flutter interrupted reception of weak signals on the whip,
reception was much smoother with the COMPACtenna.”

Testimonial:
Our company “Ham and HiFi” purchased a Compactenna 2M/220/440 antenna from HRO recently!
We use the antenna for testing radios we acquire from ” ham radio collections” we purchase from all over the US !
The construction of our shop / warehouse is with foil backed insulation, steel doors and steel roof
which have made using inside antennas a problem …..
But when using the Compactenna I’m now able to connect to repeaters through out the Reno / Sparks area!
Easy to install, easy to use ( no tuning ), wide banded and will handle 85 watts on 2, 50 watts on 220 / 440 !
Best of all a small footprint and it works !              I ordered another for my truck !
Regards, Don W7SSB

COMPACtenna The Spectrum Monitor May 2019 FRONT PAGE    By Chris Parris    ” … The COMPACtenna … seemed too good to be true.
The antenna appears to be very well built and not flimsy.
The COMPACtenna SW does indeed work as advertised.
It appears to be useful in situations where a larger or longer antenna is not practical or possible.
I did receive shortwave stations better than the standard whip antenna provided on basic shortwave radios.”
