Is the J-Pole the ultimate 10 meter band vertical antenna?


Although I've used J-Pole antennas for the 2m/70cm amateur radio bands, I've never explored their usefulness on the 10 meter band.

This video from Michael Martens (KB9VBR) has changed my mind.

In this video, Michael discusses the pros and cons of this simple, effective vertical antenna.  Michael feels the J-Pole may be the "ultimate" vertical antenna for the 10 meter band.
