I ordered this antenna in June, 2010.  I sent an email back in August, 2010 asking him what the delay is.
He said he had mailed it, but would build another.  
It is now November, 2010 with neither antenna in sight.
I have seen/read where others have received theirs, but they do not mention how long
it took to receive the antenna once they ordered it.

I will ask the moderator to delete this when/if I receive the antenna.
But, right now, I'm unhappy.

I have dealt with Tony CT1FFU several times regarding these antennas.  While his antennas work well, I have found that they aren't that well made and I've had
problems with them.  His customer service is non-existant.  If you keep asking him to follow through you will probably eventually get your antenna after
a long list of excuses (computers crashed, just got back from ham-fest, must have gotten lost etc.)  The truth is his products do well around Europe where he
is located, these are his least expensive items and getting them out to the US seems to be a low priority for him.

You can EASILY make your own of MUCH better quality- a good quality 9:1 Unun that you can make or buy from any one of quality vendors in the US (I've had Bob
at BalunDesigns make them for me, they are the best for the money IMHO) and a length of wire 130', 66', 24' seem to work well depending on what bands you what to cover/installation site ability.
CT1FFU's EZ Wire web site even has a chart of wire lengths he recommends for use with a 9:1 Unun.

Good luck!

I bought an EZ Wire from CT1FFU on an Monday and by next Monday I was unpacking it.
For me it was an excellent service, friendly with no problems.
