Great Inexpensive QRP Dual Band Antenna  Time owned: more than 12 months
Very easy kit to build, maybe 2 hours tops to get everything just right. Did a little trimming to get it just right for both 40 and 20 meters. Low SWR on both bands and works well at all heights. I usually run it as an inverted V or dipole but a slopper is possible too.
I can quickly put up or take it down and it stores easily on a 4.5 inch by 20 inch cardboard with rubber bands to hold it down. I have had it up in parks on a pushup mast and a tree from 15 to 31 feet and flat top or inverted V. Works great with my KX3 at 10 to 15 watts. Very low noise and broadband too.
Much easier to put up than my Buddy Pole and equal to my MFJ Big Ears. Works better than the BP because it is very broad-banded and requires no adjustments once tuned. So much easier and less expensive than some well advertised antennas.

Easy to Assemble, Works Great!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Bought this antenna to simplify my SOTA experience. I was using an EFHW system, that required two wires per band, and only one band could be up at once. This antenna is two bands without a tuner needed. Mine works great, even at low heights. The kit is very simple to assemble and the instructions were very clear. Built in strain relief is smartly done. Great antenna for home or portable use!
