Good antenna  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
I bought this antenna for 250. It arrived quickly and well packaged. The instructions could be a bit better, but a quick phone call sorted that out. The dipole is well built. You have 2 coils per band and these are placed either side of each end of the dipole and the 40m is placed on the end. 6m is the length of the dipole.
6m V Good into Europe
10m,12m,15m and 17m V Good into Europe, N and S America
20m Disappointing not as good as the other bands. Not as good than my G5RV which is lower down
30m (with tuner) Good into Europe
40m Good into Europe.

Overall a good antenna for 6m-17m.
20m was a big let down
