SSB Backstay antenna

Hi to all,
We had a backstay antenna fitted by Amel at the time of production,
mainly because the whip would have interfered with the davits we
wanted to install. In 5+ years, we have had no problems with SSB
communications, and often find that we receive and transmit better
than neighboring boats. However, we have not done side-by-side
comparisons with a SM with a whip.
Regards, Roy
