Seldom have I ever complimented a manufacturer of a product, this is one of those few occasions that I wish to say thank you for an outstanding product.
One of my hobbies is amateur radio which I have been enjoying since 1980 when I obtained my very first license to operate on the bands. Twenty-two years have seen many radios and other electronic devices pass through the hamshack, but none so valuable as the SGC couplers. I presently own your models SG-230, SG-231 & SG-237.
I'm 58 years old and have been totally disabled for several years. Erecting effective communication antennas would have been a nearly impossible chore if not for your couplers. In addition to the ease of antenna installation, they have provided a sure fire method of effective antenna coupling to the transmitter thus insuring final protection against high VSWR.
I have coupled anything from a 102" vertical whip mounted on a Tupperware waste basket with four ground radials, to dipoles, inverted vees, long wires, slopers, and etc.. Most impressive has been the outstanding performance of the antenna using the SGC couplers. Those with whom I have had a QSO are amazed to find out that the barefoot signal they listening to is from a simple wire antenna being fed via your coupler. Most have been flabbergasted to find out they have been chatting with someone wired to a whip antenna mounted on a Tupperware waste basket that is generating one of the strongest signals on the band.
Being disabled also means that one has limited resources to purchase expensive HF antennas, your couplers give individuals like us an effective alternative to solve that problem. The SGC coupler is a collection of antennas built into one package, imagination is the only limitation. A spool of #10 or #12 THHN wire and a SGC coupler is all you need to erect the finest big signal antennas.
Thank you for a fine product, someday I may have the opportunity to purchase one of your HF rigs. I have no doubt that your radio gear is as fine a product as your couplers.
