Re: Miracle Whip and the QCX

On the HFpack website there is a vertical antenna shootout that compares various portable antennas, the Miracle Whip was one of them. I seem to remember one earlier shootout that by adding a counterpoise it improved the performance of the antenna somewhat.
I never owned one but I built one from bits and pieces I had on hand. I use it as a portable receive antenna and it worked Ok for that But don’t remember if I tried to transmit with it.
