Chris here is a testimonial on my Challenger antenna. Thanks for all your help and keep up the good work
To whom it may concern,
I have installed a Challenger antenna. The antenna was real easy to assemble. I put the antenna together in about 3 hrs. The instructions are excellent on how to build the antenna. I installed the antenna on my garage roof on a 5 ft. tripod. I do have the antenna guyed down. As you can see I put nylon rope on the bottom of the guy wires for shock cords. The antenna has been up for 5 months and has survived wind gusts of 54 mph. Chris advised me that I might have to add on to the counterpoise due to mounting the antenna on the garage roof. When I checked the SWR it was high on all bands. I added 10' of wire onto each counterpoise wires. After cutting the extra wire down to 6 1/2 ft the SWR was 1:1.1 across all the bands. I have worked 5 countries on a 100 watts so far. I have been receiving excellent reports on how the antenna is doing on 80 to 2 meters.
The attached photos shows the antenna up close and how the antenna is mounted.

Here's a picture of the Titan we used during the 2007 IOTA contest (NA-092). The Titan worked flawlessly! This is the second IOTA contest with this antenna. We will use no other antenna! Saltwater and the Titan, what a team.

My EAGLE works now about 5 weeks pretty fine. I mounted it in only 5hours.
The SWR is less than 1:1.3 about 5 Bands and on 15m Band the SWR is less than
1:1,5. So I can switch the band without tuning. (from the beginning to the end of the band).
I got good rapports and I am worked 5 Continents on the first two days I am operating.

Good Folks @ GAP:
I got my Titan DX up a few weeks ago. Assembly was very, very easy. I
have logged SSB contacts all over North America and Canada on less than
100W. In fact, my first QSO on the Titan was with N8MDP, also running a
I have had nothing but good reports on readability and signal strength.
Looking for forward to many, many good times with this fantastic antenna.
Attached is a photo of the installed Titan DX, up on a pole to conserve
yard space, and guyed.
Thank you, thank you, thank your for this GREAT product. I am spreading
the good news about GAP antennas wherever I go.

Have a look at these pictures!
Last week we have had a terrible storm that broke an healthy oak tree in
very close at the front side off our house (Picture with the read kids
play ground shows the backside). I have not guided the Titan dx and as
you can see its well exposed to the wind. During that storm I have seen
the antenna making freighting bends but it still works as great as before

I am very pleased with the quality and performance of my new Gap Titan
vertical. The assembly was trouble-free and the bandwidth is exceptional.
It is very quiet and signal reports have been surprisingly favorable.
The Titan has a good bang for the buck - keep up the good work!

I installed this antenna two years ago with excellent results. I also
call my home a Faraday box hi. I have not seen this type installation in
your installation examples. The mount is 2 2x6 treated with 6" lag bolts
into 3 studs there are structural walls at right angles inside. I used 4'+
vertical spacing on these mounts. I use no guys and it has survived wind
gusts up to 50 mph.

If you worked us during the 2000/1999/1998 CQWW phone contest it may
have been on my GAP. From the picture you can tell that it was a little
breezy that day. Wind in the range of 160km per hour can play havoc with
any antenna! The south coast of Labrador can be a nasty spot in late
October, or any time of the year for that matter. But what the heck,Zone 2
doesn't get any better than this!
The Challenger work well on all bands and was used as a back up to the
mono-banders and wires. It actually heard better (at times) than the full
size wire for 160 meters that was hung off of the Pointe Amour Lighthouse
at 109 feet. Of course depending on the time of day and conditions etc. it
was interesting to make comparisons with the full size wires or
mono-banders. For the most part I was delighted with my GAP. It always
heard well and some times even heard better as well as got out better.
I played with 12 and 17 meters with good results before the contest
started. It was nice to work lots of stations for a new one on the WARC
bands with just 80 watts. From my experience I would have to say that I am
most pleased with the results on 40 meters. Working VK's and ZL's barefoot
was a blast! For me the GAP is a "Great Antenna!"

Dear Sirs, I am writing to let you know how pleased I am with the
performance of my GAP EAGLE that I got from you in 1999. It has
done everything required of it& I have worked numerous dx stations
on all the bands it is designed for it without any tuner.
Thanks for a very fine product. I am enclosing a photo of my Eagle in

Attached are three pictures of the (I think) neat installation of my
Titan DX on my manufactured home. It's obviously on the south side as
you can see from the satellite dish (grin). Note the proximity of the
Titan to the TV antenna. Above the TV antenna on the same mast is my
Cushcraft AR270 for 2 meters and 440. Surprisingly enough, I have seen
absolutely NO interaction between the Titan and any of the other
antennas despite their closeness. No TVI, no herringbones and
especially no complaints from the neighbors! I don't know if I
mentioned that the radio is Yaesu FT840, running 100 watts max on 80
through 10. The other radio is a Yaesu FT8500 - 50 watts max on 2 and
35 of 440. Of course we have mountains here with repeaters - our main
system is at about 3600 ft and the other two are at about 3000 ft.
They're north of us. I remember when I lived in Melbourne back in the
50's and early 60's. Seems we were lucky if we got from Melbourne to
Cocoa on 2 meter AM!
The Titan is performing just great. Worked a special event station in
Japan yesterday on 15 meters (8N2000).
Hope the pix are good enough for you to use on the website. One doesn't
show much of the antenna, but shows how we guyed it. The guy anchor
goes down about 18" into concrete that we poured 8" in diameter.
I painted the anchor OSHA yellow and also striped the guy rope so
hopefully nobody will walk into it. There shouldn't be anyone back
I think I mentioned that I used to live in Melbourne, almost where the
railroad crosses Babcock street just east and a little north of the
airport. I don't know whether Ted Woodbury of TEDCO Electronics is
still around, but he gave me my first exam when I got my novice and tech
ticket back in about 1962.

Here are a couple more (and better) pictures of my Titan DX installed at
the rear of my manufactured home. You may notice in the background my
Cushcraft AR270 and a TV antenna. There's less than 12 ft. between the
Titan and the other antennas. Running my Yaesu FT840 barefoot there has
been absolutely NO TVI or interference of any kind. So far with my 100
watts I've logged many Canadians, the whole East coast of the US, Korea,
Russia, Austria, Cuba, Japan, Mexico and a lot of 2's, 3's, 4's, 5's,
7's. 8's, 9's and 0's. The Titan is doing a fantastic job. I'm using
mostly 20, 15 and 17 meters. Actually, one of my friends (WD6EXV) was
so impressed that he's planning on ordering a Titan DX.
Keep up the good work, guys!
