I know what one I like the look of best.

UK Silver Rod, look how thin that wire is about 1.5mm on treated cardboard.

Sirio 1/2 GPS Silver rod coil, double as thick at least :

It's actually only 1mm enamelled copper wire, on the sliver rod. Rolling Eyes  You may find this post of interest...

It is your photo there with the cheapo coil. 1mm.

The UK sliver rods are ok for portable, super light and you can use jubilee clips with butterfly nuts on each section so they are handy for that. The Sirio more tricky as it is screws, more hassle.

The Sirio GPS 1/2 much better quality for a base installation.

Must be quite a lossy coil set up using 1mm I bet that heats up with 100W SSB. I think they should re-design the coil section of the UK one using better quality former and wire. I would never buy one again personally after seeing that.

I thought I recognised the picture! Laughing

After rebuilding the transformer coil with new wire and proper solder, it can handle the new 1kW legal limit on 10m, with no problems.

Out-of-the-box, the build quality is crap. Exclamation
