Anyone got any feeling for the Siro Boomerang 27A?
Or any boomerang, for that matter.

I quite fancy giving one of these a go.

Hi Doc, if you can get a bigger antenna up this will be hugely superior to the boomerang. This will neither hear well or get your signal out well.

Hi. I have a Sirio Boomerang A here, bought it about 6 months ago and was in use until 3 months ago when I upgraded to a Sirio GPE 5/8wave vertical for CB use and 10m usage.  The Boomerang was a good antenna and brilliant if you live in a Flat as its designed to lash to Balcony railings etc.



I have lent it to a friend to try along with my Thunderpole T800 rig and PSUso they can evaluate CB for themselves.

I used one as my first antenna back in the 80s as a stop gap till i was allowed to have a much larger antenna and tbh it wasnt great.Up on the roof top it did get out but was poor compared with the 1/2w silver rod i replaced it with..id be inclined to make a wire dipole or a coax antenna instead..

Thank you all for your advice. Think a 1/2 silver rod will be the way forward then. Tall though; I lashed some canes together yesterday to make 18' to get an idea. Haven't bought the radio yet, so just planning out the set-up first.

Do you mount yours on the house or make a mast in the garden?
