I recently acquired the Grazy Master 28MHz 10m antenna from G&C Communications, and I must say, it’s been a delightful addition to my setup. Let me break down my experience:
Customer Service: The folks at G&C Communications deserve a standing ovation. Despite my late-night order (yes, I’m a night owl), they handled it with grace—even if they briefly suspected me of moonlighting as a hacker! 🌙 Their responsiveness and professionalism were top-notch.
Installation: I mounted the antenna about 5 meters off the ground, discreetly attached to the side of my house. The best part? Its shiny silver finish makes it blend seamlessly into the surroundings. Stealth mode activated!
Performance: The moment of truth arrived when I tested the VSWR at 28MHz. Drumroll, please… 1.1! That’s right, folks—awesome performance right out of the gate. Crystal-clear signals, as if the airwaves themselves were applauding.
First Contact: My inaugural transmission reached all the way to Germany. Sure, they said my signal was a tad low, but it was very readable. I felt like an intercontinental whisperer, bridging continents with my trusty Grazy Master.
Tongue-in-Cheek Antenna Farm: Okay, let’s be real—I don’t have an actual antenna farm (yet). But if I did, the Grazy Master would be the star attraction. It’s like having a secret weapon against radio mediocrity.
In summary, I highly recommend the Grazy Master end-fed 1/2 wave vertical. It’s not just an antenna; it’s a conversation starter, a beacon of connectivity. And as for G&C Communications, they’ve won a loyal customer. 📡

I used to order my Pulse connectors through David VK3TTS, aka TTS Systems.
Unfortunately, David has passed away, and condolences to Cloe. David reassured me that these are the best connectors around.
High quality, excellent center conductor and shield bonding, and great water integrity mitigation system. Once you have used these for PL259 Connections, you will never use anything else again. Brilliant connectors.
Paul Mitchell Corporal Radio Technician Air RAAF Ret. For me, radio was not just a job. It was a passion. I have to obtain my RF Fix every day.
Just purchased 1 of these, and I've got to say I'm impressed, works really well, numbers are easy to read, getting good on air reports, got some awesome features on it too.
Did most my dealing with Amy, and she was nothing but professional and helped me in every way she could, nice and punctual, fast correspondence,
a lot of other business's could take a leaf out of G&C communications book.
Thanks Amy and Graham, i will certainly be back when i need something else.
Excellent customer service from this business.
The quality of this antenna is second to none.
That’s what you get when it’s Australian made.
Straight out of the box and SWR is spot on

Straight out of the box perfect SWR, hour of set up able to hear and talk all around the country
Have talked all over the world with low power. Handles high winds as well.
great dx antenna will made local and over sea skip
I bought one of these bad boy's a couple of weeks ago. Works a treat picking up people all over the place. I highly recommend this antenna so do you self a favour and go visit the shop and get yourself a Grazy Master ( Hell yeah )
Put this girl up a few weeks ago I’m in Lake Macquarie NSW skip has been rolling in thick and fast as far as the USA best money I’ve spent I can’t wait to put the three element up
This antenna replaced a 5/8th I had that got a touch of lightening. Best built station master type antenna I've ever had, no pop rivets.
Anything will receive skip when conditions are happening, but this antenna improved my local regular contacts by 2 S points.
Yeah, its a good aerial.
