Fantastic Antenna  Time owned: more than 12 months
It seems that will last forever, besides that, great results on the bands, several contests such cqww-wpx and others were won using this antenna on 10/15 and 20 mts.

superb performance  Time owned: more than 12 months
my hygain th6-dxx was FREE off a old G3 station who had packed up,the beam had been lying in a hedgerow on his farm for some years so i took it home and started the clean up process,i took all the traps apart and cleaned everything, now i use my th6 (portable)up in the hills,the swr is fantastic across the bands and the rejection on the back and side of this beam is beyond belief and just fantastic,the th6-dxx is a 6 element triband beam and covers 10,15,20 meters, 4 elements on 10m and 3 elements on 15,20m . the boom length is 24ft and the build quality is fantastic,pile ups are so easy with the th6-dxx and i have mine on a 30 meter mobile versa tower at 1200ft asl, my old th6 is probably 20-25 years old and no doubt seen some rough weather in its life but it is still up there and still doing the buisness like the day it was new.

RELIABLE  Time owned: more than 12 months
I have this beam in use since 1987. I bought it second hand, and replaced the hardware with stainless steel nuts/bolts/.... . Now this beam is still in the air at 24m hieght it never failed ever since.
This antenna survided several 1 severe storms @ 150 km/h windvelocity, every year it s survives moderate several storms at 110 km/h to 130 km/h.
It s a great penetrator especially on 15 and 20 m bands.
I am participating regulary in contests as a low power station and the th6dxx is playing the game very nicely.

This beam merits a 5+ because of the reliabilty.

A durable classic  Time owned: more than 12 months
I just refurbished a 29 year old TH6 and installed it at 87 feet. I cut it for CW and it will cover the low end of the phone bands also. This antenna is very durable and performs as well as any tribander on a 24 foot boom. Buy one used for $100 then spend $75 for new plastic and stainless steel and rivet the elements vs using hose clamps. You'll have a great performer for 20+ years.
