Yes Pat I use one for 11m and it works very well good ears on it and also brilliant rejection, I have made quite a few over the years and prefer them to the yagis because of the small foot print,but the 20m one is a lot bigger which I use portable.

Hi Pat. There wasn't much propagation the last time I checked a few weeks ago. El comandante is still there though 😀 I can hear him talking to himself most days. It must be a lonely life for him. Cheers fie now , and happy holidays. Sammy

Can the Spanish authorities not do anything to shut him down?, he's a perfect nuisance, did the Spanish government issue all the idiots with radios to keep them occupied when they closed down all their lunatic asylums? It's a pitty that such an anus has such a good setup but just chooses to be such a retard.

To be honest I'm not sure . CB has been deregulated here now , so you don't need a licence any more . He's a good bit away from me (50 miles) , so he doesn't really bother me thankfully .
