What to say

Yes, this antenna is my main antenna. I think it's very well constructed and assembly was no problem at all.
It stands only at 6m (19 ft) so I can't expect to much but generally it's a decent antenna.

Grtz!

Seems to be a bit expensive at $250. They say it covers from 25MHz but specification says swr are an incredible 41:1 at 25MHz and drops to 2:1 only at 88MHz. There must be much more cost effective discones than this one?

Are you planning to do transmitting with the antenna? If not then SWR really isn't a factor in the reception aspects - I mean it is, but for receiving purposes SWR is rarely a serious consideration in choosing an antenna for monitoring duties.
