Maldol MFB-300 HF vertical antenna

The Japanese-made Maldol MFB-300 HF vertical is the latest antenna on the market to offer extremely wide-band performance, with a specified frequency range of 1.0-60 MHz.
There are very few antennas that can claim to work well across such a range and I was keen to see how it would perform. The benefits to a newly-licensed amateur, or one with very restricted space for antennas, are obvious.
The Maldol gives you access to all of the HF bands, plus 6m, and apparently all without the need for an ATU. I wasn't terribly impressed, but any antenna is better than no antenna I guess.
