Don't bother  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
I put this antenna up in my attic, and it was lousy. I put it up outside, and it was lousy. I will say that it is quite well put together. I just wish it worked better. I replaced it with an OCF dipole.

Versatile Antenna  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
With a half decent antenna tuner this antenna seems to be able to tune fairly well on all
the hf bands 10-80 meters. It's really a great
antenna to have. I feel the price is right and
the construction is very solid,I am pleased
how well the center is constructed. I live
in an apartment on the second floor and
have mine outside in the pine trees. I just
recently worked Beaune,France on 40 meter CW
with 100 watts,my RST was 579,not bad from
Akron,Ohio. Great antenna to get if you
have a tight budget or if you travel alot.
My only advice is be VERY CAREFUL not
to tangle the coils up,it's so difficult if not
impossible to untangle slinkies! Clear instructions come with the antenna

Very nice SWL antenna  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
Had my cliff dweller about a year as I'm in an apartment with antenna restrictions, so an indoor antenna was my only hope. The cliff dweller has performed nicely and filled the bill.
I only stretch it out about 12 feet, but it receives great on all of the SW bands and I take it with me when camping for my Grundig 800 receiver. Construction is rock solid. I agree they are nice folks to do business with, and treated me great also. Recommended.

Amazing Little Antenna  Time owned: more than 12 months
I've bought 3 items from these folks over the last couple of years and have been very pleased with each one - plus the people are nice to deal with and very courteous.

So far, I've got a Cliffdweller 2 antenna, a "Better (I beleive it's called) G5RV" and their counterpoise setup. Each product was quality construction and worked as well or better than advertised, uou cant ask for more.

Great little antenna  Time owned: more than 12 months
I bought my Cliffdweller antenna about 3 years ago and have used it repeatedly with very good results. I travel a lot for business and use it when I go on the road as it fits easily in my suitcase. I also use it on the wall of my den (apartment) when I'm home, since I cant have an outside ant. Good construction, solidly built, and a handy little gizmo to have around. For the price, all in all, it's a great little antenna to have where a full sized one just wont work.
