Too Fragile
Would not buy again at any price over $1.
PROS
Small-light


CONS
The third time I wound it up it got so tangled I had to take it apart to use it again. Within 10 uses the ends came off as if they had been glued on with spit. I did better with 20ga speaker wire.

Did NOT perform as expected
It was my experience that this devise was absolutely worthless! Radio reception was ONLY improved by directive re-positioning with NO added improvement in signal via attachment of the Reel Antenna.
PROS
Reel retrieval and storage of wire antenna


CONS
Adds nothing to reception of radio signal strenghth


BEST USES
paperweight

Good Looking Antenna
I like this antenna. Good work C.Crane. Worth the money.
PROS
Good frequency response. Optimal lowest frequency at a quarter wave length is 10mhz (234 divide by 10 is 23.4ft) The inline capacitor sort of lowers its frequency response. I was able to hear hams on the 40 meter ham band (7000khz-7300khz). It does really well on 20 meter ham band (14000khz-14350khz). AM broadcast is not a issue as they run 10Kw to 150kw. Much stronger than ham radio(1.5kw max p.e.p) It can receive weak signals well.


CONS
Wire could be thicker. 1 gauge thicker. Antenna clip could be tiighter.


BEST USES
Indoor use or dry weather outdoors.

a good pocket carry antenna
I have had one of these antennas for 20 years. Its an excellent pocket carry antenna. If you need improved reception, just clip it on to the antenna rod. Its a durable antenna and with minimal care it lasts. If you like shortwave, nothing beats a portable longer wire when on the go. 73
