Solarcon A-99. Next to it is my Comet GP-98 tribander.

I'm limited to two omnis and no hard mounts (lease terms), so best I can do.

I put out a "good enough" signal on 10M, and "really good" on VHF/UHF.

Ahhhhhhhh...the famous A-99.

I've heard they also work pretty well on 12 and 17. Have you tried it there?

No. I don't even have equipment for those bands.

Never heard of this one before so I did some searching. An interesting view and analysis of the antenna at »www.g0vqy.co.uk/pdf/a99.pdf

Very nice, but how did you get that 2M/440 vertical up on the power pole?

Too bad there was no follow-up report, or a peer-review, or an objective "pre-tear-down analysis."
