Although I've never owned a DX Engineering MBVE-1 Multiband HF Vertical Antenna, I've seen these beauties in action and can highly recommend this antenna for those wanting to establish a serious DX antenna.
In this video, "David S" begins a three-part series on the MVBE-1 Vertical Antenna, taking us step-by-step through the unpacking, ground and radio preparation, construction, testing, and final on-air operation.
David approaches his task with enthusiasm and a touch of humor, since assembly of this antenna is far from easy. David pays particular attention to detail and the building of a decent support and ground radial system. In parts 2 and 3, we learn how to correctly assemble the antenna and conduct preliminary testing of the system.
Tuning is accomplished by using the DX Engineering multiband vertical UNUN and your in-shack wide-range tuner. Coming up next: Part 2.
