    Yes I dont doubt you but I have it now and give it a try. Here is a review of it.
    http://www.cbradiomagazine.com/Anten...a%20Review.htm

    I read your review about the Siro and found it interesting that he mentions the Radiowavz Double Bazooka in the first sentence.

    Quote 'I often check out the deals from H & Y Electronics and after seeing this antenna advertised I got curious enough to purchase one. I'm a big fan of dipole antennas as a simple and effective antenna system and in the past I had very good success with the Radiowavz Bazooka so I was excited to try this Aluminum Alloy antenna from Sirio."Quote

    Anyways what ever my outcome I will post it here if interested. Wish me luck!!!

    Thanks. If it doesn't work in the attic of my garage I can easily move it outside either horizontally ,or vertically or something in between.

    That is fascinating and thanks for posting. I am frankly surprised that a SWR of 1.5 is only a 4% loss and I can see why I have read of guys being happy with that. At what SWR when barefoot does it threaten the electronics? 2.0 %? More?
    Also a what SWR could it harm a rig with an amp?

    I have collected 5 SWR meters over the years and they all show that they red line at 3.0:1 ( Danger ) but I wouldn't allow anything over 1.5:1 and I really don't settle for that if I can help it. I want to wring every last drop of power I can out of my system!

    vswr danger to your equipment is directly related to the quality of the components and their construction . ham equipment is typically built much sturdier with better components and design so they can handle vswr that will kill cb radios and cb/export type radios . typically 1.5 or less is safe for cb stuff but i'll suggest tuning as low as possible in case you get a bump in wet weather . a antenna tuner is a option if you're trying to go beyond the bandwidth of your antenna .

    here's a article you may find interesting ....

    even doubling or halfing power will very rarely be the deciding factor on making a distant contact .
