GAM Backstay Antenna

Good evening, all...

I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with the GAM twin-lead backstay antenna? http://gamelectronicsinc.com/ssb.htm

I tried searching without much success....my search-fu is weak today.

TIA

Do a search to find postings by btrayfors about his "alternate backstay" antenna. Very easy to make, will work better, and will cost a tiny fraction of the $400 they want for this thing.
