President Texas 1800 Power V Sirio 4000HP “An Indication, Guide”

Every time I publish a video of antenna user test (a user on air) always the merde flies if the results aren’t as people would want them to be. So thanks to Chris “The Hulk” whose done some antenna tests, recorded them side by side and added them to YouTube. Thanks Chris for your efforts. Video shows on air use, no white coat, flip charts, it’s a user of the radio “using” his equipment..

Due to facts that some people can’t take it I’m not commenting more than check with Sid CT141 there is a big difference on the video. But of course disclaimers such as soil, weather, temperature, amount of O zone in the air, cigarette type, SWR, position of antenna all need to be added to the mix. 2013-2014-2015-2016 Unathorised Use / Or Duplication of this material without express and written permission from this blog’s author is strictly prohibited.

  1. Well, a possible 1 s point more. Perhaps that one antenna is marginally longer than the other. But double your money, President £60, Sirio £30, I think someone is profiteering from this. A bit like they are doing with the Anyclone Lincoln II.

    Both of these antennae are really for square wheeled use, not mobile. If you want an extra 1 s point or even 2 s point, then buy a Tank Whip for around £15 for square wheeled. Bear in mind that these tests were all done parked up. I keep a modulator for use whilst driving, a Sirio for price, quality and ease of use and a Tank Whip for a long session net. All three of those aerials cost me the same as one President would.


  2. This “test” means absolutely nothing. The s-meters on any CB radio is never calibrated so 1 dB difference can be oen s-unit or two s-units or nothing. A “test” like this would only work with a recever with a calibrated s-meter. This video can only be seen as an “indication” and nothing more (less).


    • It’s better to have someone who invested hard earned money go sit and try it and video it. The indication shows a difference and I’m all for showing results. Engineers and those who have equipment are offered chance to show realities, blog is ALWAYS open for people to show with absolute correct lab tests. Sadly not all can afford labs and to buy all equipment needed to do such tests.
