Purchased for EMCOM and became my primary antenna!  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
The J-Pole Antenna from Ham Radio Antenna on the web at http://ham-radio-antenna.com caught my attention because it was on sale at the time I bought it. After I placed my order it arrived in a 6 MIL Thick Plastic Carrying Bag. After testing the antenna on a Rig Expert analyzer, I took it out and put it on my 30 foot mast and was hitting repeaters 60 miles away with 50 watts. We have a winner in this J-Pole, so, I immediately ordered two more of their antennas. These were also delivered the following week and I have since found out that all of the products from Ham Radio Antenna come in their own 6 MIL Bag. Pretty awesome for the person who wants to keep their antenna and even a length of coax protected from the stuff in the trunk and such.
