This was purchased for modification to 20 - 10 metres with matching achieved with a remote auto tuner. The coil was removed and a direct connection made from the SO-239 socket to the rods. I liked that bolts were used for the coil cover and upper support. 4 stars due to the use of cold rivets for fixing the SO-239 socket. I replaced these with nut/bolts Also used extra self tap screws to secure the tube sections as some flexing noted using just the screw clamps. Finally, I know these are called silver rods but to make the aerial low profile I wrapped the whole aerial in black pvc tape so it was less visible in sunlight.
