Great!  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
Moved to HOA community. Saw this and gave it a try, strung on electric fence insulators screwed to the fence. It's 136 ft long, good for 1KW ICAS and it did exactly what they said it would when I checked it with my MFJ-259C.

Mine is bent about 1/3 of the way out, short side is roughly NE/SW, long end is 90 deg from that. SWR on my K3/100 ranges from 1.7 to 1.0 on all the bands. Haven't hooked up the KPA500 yet. At 100W, at the end of Cycle 24, I work DX on 20 and occasionally 15, and lots of domestic stations on 40. 80 is sort of NVIS although KH6 is in the log too.

For the price and at 1.8m AGL, it surprises me every time I turn the radio on. This really beats $2,000 for a flag pole antenna in the back yard with attendent conduit and remoted KAT500.
