Would agree, the top one without doubt.

Except, I don't believe it will take 1kW except at the lowest SWR point on any band, ie if you have to use a tuner, it will get hot, or very hot :)

Not a problem, we only have 400 watts at the antenna allowable in most ops circumstances! :D

Who's actually manufacturing these antennas in the top link? The Seller is listed as Missglasgow, but he/she seems to have a poor command of English.

Thanks for replies folks -- Looks like 'missglasgow' is the clear winner!
