Loving the Wolf River Coil

It's been a while since I received my Wolf River Coil (WRC), Take-It-Along(TIA) version, and I'm loving it.

I waited until I could use the WRC/TIA in different locations and under different conditions before writing this review.

I have the Yaesu 891 with the LDG Z11 ProII tuner that I've been using with the WRC/TIA and can honestly say the experience has been wonderful. I have made DX contacts, from the Los Angeles area and the Angeles National Forest, into 25 different states, including Alaska, and Puerto Rico, plus Canada and Russia.

The only upgrade that I'm considering is to get myself the 17' whip to replace the 102" whip (used my buddy's 17' whip to work Russia) for more distance.

Other than that, the WRC/TIA has been working great for me and my POTA activations (just started last week).

As for comparison, as a new ham, my exposure is limited. I use a end-fed half wave wire at my condo, but out in the field I also have a mobile Outback 2000.

In my experience the WRC/TIA has outperformed both, relatively.

Thank you for providing this high quality antenna, as it has helped me progress in my HF ventures.

Thanks from Servando K6SRV

I wanted to reach out and tell you how happy I am with my WRC. It was my first vertical antenna since getting my General upgrade. It has been responsible for my contacts all over the U.S. including Italy, Japan and many B.C. contacts on just a simple FT-891 (100watts).

I have since added a clamp to make it easier to set up in the field for POTA, radials and a 102" Mil Whip.

I RARELY reach out to companies about how well their products work and after so many great signal reports and POTA logs being hammered, I just had to reach out to say thank you!

Great product, great service

Got my SOTA outfit on Saturday, took it out yesterday to the Appalachian Trail (K-4556) in the Nantahala National Forest (K-4509). Tuned up on 20 meters two clicks from the top. 45 QSOs in an hour with Xigue G-90 @ 20 watts.

Great product and good service. I am sold on this for traveling, SOTA and POTA. Delighted. Going to order longer tripod legs.

I absolutely love my TIA 1000 with the center fed option. Since I live in an HOA, I had to hide it. Placed it in the backyard so it is virtually invisible from the street. It is semi-permanently mounted there.

Here are my contacts since August. Thanks again for a great, inexpensive product!
