Works Good  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I've had this antenna for about a month and have been using it daily. The design is clever, it sets up and takes down easily without tools, it's durable, and it works great. I use it primarily on 20 meters with low power and can work just about anyone I can hear. For example, worked SM5CAK from here (San Diego) this morning with 20 watts CW and the Minuteman 20. It also loads up using a tuner on 30 and 40 meters.

Great Antenna  Time owned: more than 12 months
Looks like it could not work and PVC pipe makes it look mickey mouse. But it goes together quickly and the basic coil and parts are top notch. Best of all it works and has a low swr if the tap is placed on the coil as suggested. Sometimes the DX contacts I make while outside using my FT897 under battery power surprise me. Buy one if you want a quick set up portable antenna.
