OREGON: 28-foot + 1 kW. "Yup, 80 years old and got it up by myself"

A happy customer in Oregon writes:

"Yup, 80 years old and got it up by myself!" (28-foot DX Flagpole Antenna)

"Put the MFJ Tuner on back of the shed; 100 feet of buried coax to the house. It tunes on all bands less than 1.5 (gets on 160 with little help and takes 1kW just fine!"

Would you like to work Real DX on all bands, 160-6M, with one Vertical Antenna for your ham radio, requiring no radials, no guy wires, and ready out of the box in 90 minutes?

"It Works AND Greyline Warranty Is For Real - AA5DV"

I ordered Greyline’ 28’ OCF Vertical Dipole on October 25, 2018. I erected the antenna in Happy Valley, Oregon. I am an 82-year-old retired Episcopal Priest and did the assembly myself which is good for this Extra Class ‘appliance operator’.

This year we had a strange wind/ice storm that brought down some trees and large tree limbs, including my antennas. It was a unique happening where ice formed very quickly and I could not lower the flag which turned into a massive block of ice contributing to taking down my vertical flagpole antenna.

I contacted Greyline about purchasing several sections and hardware for an attempted repair. Before getting any specific answer concerning needed parts, I got an e-mail that the package had been sent from Greyline. I was confused until a thirty-pound carton appeared on my front porch.

Greyline had replaced my 28’ Flagpole Antenna, no questions asked.

I never thought about this on Greyline’s first page of advertising for 28' DX Flagpole Antenna, Stealth HOA Vertical Antenna No Radials 160-6M
• Industry-leading 4-year warranty

"Just wanted you to know --- Greyline replaced my Vertical Antenna --- No Questions asked!"


NEW TO HAM RADIO? A QUICK REFRESHER ON "HOW TO SET UP YOUR HAM RADIO STATION FOR REAL DX ON ALL BANDS AT HOME OR IN AN HOA?"

According to K3QZ's pictures and story (previous Blog post), it is as easy as...

1. Pick a pleasing spot to plant an HF Vertical Antenna at your QTH
2. Dig a little 3-4' deep hole, 10-16" diameter.
3. Pour the Quikrete and set vertical the included PVC sleeve.
4. Assemble the Flagpole Antenna, tilt it up and plant it, by sliding it into the PVC sleeve (it's a strong method that's been through hurricanes)
5. Connect the coax cable
6. Pick a band, tune the remote tuner, and within a minute or less, YOU ARE ON THE AIR with a Real DX signal.
