    It's a IMAX 2000. Listed as a 5/8 wave but in reality it's a .64 wave just like the old Super-Penatrator. SWR's are almost perfectly flat acrost the board. Highest reading was 1.1 to 1 . Review IMAX 2000

    Ofcorse. I wanta hear it if someone messes with the K5 in the middle of the night. The Daily Driver isn't that importent. It's got a nice headunit for the stereo, but thats about all.

    Gotta say I like being able to sit in the house when it's cold out and BS the night away with people from all over.
