Good for temporary activations  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
I have seen this antenna on the internet, I was intrigued and I bought it, pretty simple assembly attention to measurement of capacitance hats, the antenna structure is very light, it is not suitable for installation in areas with strong wind, snow, or ice , the retaining bracket to the base is really poor.
The project is not bad but the materials used are too light to an antenna that height.
I wonder why MFJ does not provide a plastic box to put that coil, it does not take much to break it.
