You'll enjoy it. Mine is above my roof eve about 30" above ground. I have a duplexor on the end of 75'coax with two radios on it. The first is a 70cm Motorola that acts as a Echolink node with a repeater about 35 miles away. It's always full quieting with a SWR at 70cm at 1.15:1. The second radio is a Yaesu 7800 that acts as a APRS gateway and I occationally chat on the repeaters. I can hit any repeater in all of the adjacents counties to me. SWR on the 2m side is 1.2:1. The antenna has been in storms with winds over 40mph with just a small amount of movement. I really like this antenna and I'd recommend it.

I really like mine.  I can hit a 2M repeater that's 25 miles away with 5W and recently had a simplex QSO with a station 40 miles away (using 50W).  There isn't enough activity on 70 cm around me to evaluate its performance on that band though.
