Critical to the design of the GAP Eagle was the requirement to permit operation anywhere on all of its designed frequencies. The Eagle provides full coverage with a VSWR less than 2:1 on 40m, 20m, 17m, 15m, and 12m and approximately 500 KHz on 10m without readjusting. 10m operation is further optimized with a supplied extender. Compare that performance to any other low profile vertical. With the Eagle, as with all GAP antennas, you will not need to buy a tuner. If a rare DX station appears on 7.050, but, you normally work the SSB nets around 7.250, just slide the VFO and key the rig!
If the band is wide open, you might work a LU6 with a coat hanger, but when conditions are less than perfect you want the highest S meter reading an antenna can provide. Efficiency is critical. The efficiency of the GAP Eagle is without equal. It has no traps, transformers or matching coils to rob transmitted or received power. For the highest S meter, choose a GAP Eagle.

Review Teddy KQ4TL –:
I installed the GAP Eagle 11/7/1992 while I lived in Virginia. It is the best antenna that I have ever used. Moved to Ohio in 2001, installed the same antenna and it is still working great. Good Job GAP Antenna Products, Inc

Purchased about 1989. Used it for 10 mounted at 15 feet. Worked very well. My first Gap, happy.
Review Phil Noble k2qwk –:
I”ve had an Eagle for about three years now, and have had great results with it. Ground mounted at 6ft. I’ve made many DX contacts with it…I am continually amazed at the performance..

Bought one 2nd hand, had it for 6 months 8 feet off the ground attached to a stockade fence post. So far so good.
