Seems to work   Time owned: 0 to 3 months
The antenna arrived promptly, in a nice plastic package.The product is shipped with two ceramic (not plastic) end terminators, and two sections of approximately 135 ft copper wire in total. it is supposed to be tunable, by a variable length, but this one had both ends crimped off, thus making it non-adjustable. it seemed to be resonant, at just slightly below the 80m band, but was still acceptable on the CW portion of 80m. but, anyway an ATU could bring it in, for the SSB part of 80m and for the whole of the 40m band as well.
