Works great  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Have been using now for a week.Outstanding performance.You really don't need an antenna tuner except on 80 and 30 and even there the internal ATU will tune it.Less than 1.5:1 on most frequencies.Could not set up as an inv. V or L,so it looks like a Z.Performs as well as my home-brew ocf dipole at 100FT.Hears well and very quiet.Well worth the $139,highly recommended.

Very satisfied with operation.  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I had some weather damage to my original dipole (80-20) during the winter, so shopped for something to replace it with. I found the OCF offered by MyAntenna.com and took the leap. I installed in on July 4th, so I've not had it up long. I have been delighted with the antenna. I've been able to work lots of DX barefoot, and find the signal reports I've been getting to be more than satisfactory. The receive capabilities seem great, too, so I'm very satisfied. The construction of the dipole seems very sound, and mounting it in my pine forest was a snap. I have the apex about 40ft up, and the ends in the neighborhood of 15-20 feet. Right now I'm delighted. I hope it can withstand life in the forest.
