Very good quality  Time owned: months
We purchased this antenna for our shack in Madeira. It has arrived in time and stuff at the EAntennas was very responsive and quick. The quality of manufacturing is simply excellent. The design is very well thought out. Mechanically and electrically the antenna is awesome. All the holes in the elements and boom drilled so that you cannot assemble it in a wrong way. When set up, antenna wins 10 db over Ultra Beam vertical in Europe when making A/B comparisons on the air. The only criticism is lack of proper manual in English, but then pictures and drawings have enough information for anyone who wants to understand how to do it. Another small disappointment was that 1.0 - 2.0 SWR bandwidth is only around 120 kHz. But that might have been expected with elements length of around 12 meters. All in all this antenna sure deserves solid 5.
