Makes a nice stack also  Time owned: more than 12 months
A great small rover/portable antenna.
2 of these spaced vertically between 8 to 9 feet makes a great lightweight inexpensive stack for home use also.

I have 2 of these in a simple vertical stack that I have been playing around with and it is so lightweight that I don't have to worry about high winds or ice buildup unlike with my 26 foot boom 7 element 6 meter yagi.

Best limited space antenna I ever used for the magic band  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
This is the best limited space antenna I ever tried for the magic band. Best DX so far is PY2XB not bad for QRP as I always use 5W or less. Only drawback is that the "manual" is in japaneese but the installation is a breeze anyway as the pictures are great and easy to follow

Good antenna for small environments  Time owned: more than 12 months
I had this antenna for a couple of years, together with a MFJ-9406 (8W) and worked loads of DX with it: W/VE/PY and heard VK. If you have limited space like I do, go for it.

Excellent  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
This is a great antenna. It takes up very little space, boom is only a little over 2 feet long, just a tad more than a dipole.

It is based on the dual driven element designs of HB9CV, Rai-beam makes a similiar antenna. You get 6.3dBi which is very respectable.

The only draw back is the assembly instruction which are only available in Japanese. NCG, the north american comet distributor, does not carry them in english.
