Professional quality - high end product  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I've got this monster array on top of my roof (about 15m agl) since about 2 weeks now. The mechanical design is perfect, only high-tec material used like stainless-steel and Al/Ti-alloy. The antenna performs great on all bands (30m...10m and 6m) with low SWR on most bands, just on 17m the SWR is 1:2,5.

I compared to a Butternut HF6V in my garden, abt. 1m abouve ground and 13 burried radials with different length. Measured with my IC756 S-meter, first S-value is the HF6V, second the LP1030:

NH6JC - 20m - S1/6
MM/F5BLC/p - 20m - S6/9
4X0IS - 20m - S4/7
3B9ZL - 15m - S1/7
K9AJ/VY0 - 20m - S0/3
VI8NT - 15m - S2/7
JI3DST/8 - 17m - S2/6
DK0WCY - 30m - S4/7
SK5AE/B - 10m - S1/6

The difference is very impressive and cracking pile-ups became a lot easier now.

I would buy this antenna from titanex again!
