On air with a T2FT broadband antenna on shortwave...

My experience with this antenna ... It has very good reception properties even when the antenna height is not so optimal. On the transmission side, the T2FT antenna gives quite good results, even with a relatively small footprint. But you should note that every meter up brings a better radiation! Compared to QRM at the location, this is by far the best choice! My recommendation for radio data transmission with low power, and for telegraphy and voice with greater 250 watts! For OM's that only want to make radio traffic, preferably portable operation, from DL, HB9 or OE with stations in these countries, this is definitely a good choice. No extra antenna tuner is required! The antenna was also tested here with 1kW PEP and numerous QSO's in SSB, the response of the OM's ... like a radio station, great and very loud signal!
