You just can’t please everyone, Phil.
So far, anyone who has built the magnum, with the proper number of windings for the right freq, have had excellent results. So, I base my findings off of the designer (A physics professor from Stanford – cause I sure as hell don’t understand the deep meaning of this stuff), and my own experiences, and the experiences of a few people I helped out.
I have never built the Sstran Antenna. I’ve never seen one in operation. I have built several of the Magnums – and I have seen them in operation. These are intended for use in serious application, where you wont be channel hopping.
