Does what it claims  Time owned: more than 12 months
I own serial number 001. I took a chance on this antenna and have found nothing better for working the digital modes. A recent bad day on 20 meters saw an S-3 noise reduction when I switched to the 2010 from my G5RV. It loves SSTV and hasn't shown any problems operating at 100 watts, even in digi modes. Adjustment can be a little touchy but once tuned it seems to stay put, even with wide temperature swings. It has also handled coastal weather conditions well for a year now. I consider this one of the few HF antennas I own that meets expectations without any re-engineering. Great job guys!
