    You will need the new versa hub to use the tripod legs. The legs are $50 I think.

    I would pay twice as much for an item made in the USA, I do not like supporting business out side the US, with the exception of Japan.
    I would say more, but Japan is a friendly nation, some others are not.

    Neither do I. However, I may have some bad news for you regarding your MTR-4B. Specifically this from the LNR Precision website: "We control engineering and designs for certain transceivers manufactured outside of the US." Reference: https://www.lnrprecision.com/about-us/

    Is it only capable of running as a vertical configuration? A dipole isn't perfect but I'd like that double dB of gain and the horizontal polarization of a dipole over a vertical. 73s

    Maybe I am just missing it, but I can't seem to see it on their web page. What is the cost?

    The 'stick' series are verticals, the 'pole' series are dipoles.

    You can use half of the Buddipole as a vertical if you get a tripod or park bench mount, and add one or more counterpoise wires.

    Here is my WRC in vertical and dipole configuration for two different POTA activations this summer.
