Great Portable and starter Antenna  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
Hello
I ordered the MFJ-1790 10 Meter antenna on 12/04/15 from R and L Electronics.
I got the antenna and about three days later when I opened the box 2 of the radials, the radiator was bent a little bit but I figured it was not real bad so 3 days later I assembled the antenna tuned it about 6 feet off the ground. After getting a 1.1 to 1 SWR I mounted the antenna at 25 feet in the air and it was working great. Then about a week ago(12/23/15) the SWR started fluctuating between 1.2-1.9 to 1 on and off while just testing the SWR so I am hoping it's just the cold whether and wind; if it does not stop by spring I'll send it back to MFJ but other than that it works good, gets my signal out there, made a few contacts in a couple different countries.
