Hi Fabio:

I've had about equal success with the Arrow II and with the Elk antenna
I never managed to set a real scientific double blind all variables under
control test, but in my opinion results were close enough not to be
meaningful to my ears. OK, I may not be a hi-fi fanatic and never owned
speakers bigger than my car but on the average, they were about equal.
Sometimes one seeming better than the other but never to the point I could
definitely say it was the antenna. Passes are different, trees come in the
way, general conditions vary, etc...

I'll end up putting the Elk with a horizontal rotator on a mast and use it
this winter, from the shack.

Dear OMs,

I was wondering if arrow antennas are the only portable antennas
available on ham shops or other similar products are/were available.

Any other suggestion for a simple V/U portable antenna to use for
handheld or portable operations ?
