Excellent mechanical and materials engineering.   Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Just purchased this antenna and put it on the air. The US distributor is DXEngineering who provided excellent customer service during the selection and purchase transaction.

The assembly experience was intense as there are hundreds of parts and no step-by-step assembly manual. It took me about 16 hours of assembly. There is a parts list and sub-assembly detail photos included. A bit of study solved all assembly questions that came up for me. The material supplied was all highest quality aluminum and stainless steel. A few strategic spares for some hardware were included and welcome. Expectations are that this antenna will be in the air for many maintenance-free years.

The TX-455 tower mounting to a N4ZZ Tilt-Plate was straightforward. Because the antenna has a truss system, an offset truss mast is required for the truss to clear an extended mast above the Tilt-Plate.

Side nulls are sharp with good front-to-back. Bandwidth is excellent with 1.1-1 SWR across each band with 17M the slight exception at 1.7-1 SWR. Operating is point and shoot.
