I Confirm the above  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I paid 75 Euros at Friedrieschaffen Ham Messe for this EPS "portable" 2 elements 6 meter HB9CV and can confirm the above comments: Quality control on this antenna is AWFUL: I had also to redrill boom holes to allow elements to get through, holes made to sustain the matching element was not aligned correctly. In the end, VSWR was not better than 1.7:1, which probably means that the coax stub was also cut at wrong dimension. Forget this supplier!

needs work on the finishing touch  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
What can one expect from a 85$ yagi ?
Well, the design isn't bad, the arial works like we would expect from a two element HB9CV havinf 15 to 17 dB of F/B and a 4dBd of forward gain with an opening of 60 at -3dB.

But the construction of this package was louzy.

- some srews broke when mounting the antenna
- cheep aluminum
- holes had to be drilled better for fitting

The concept may be ok, but the materials were not.
I do not recommend this company for the used materials and finish of their products.
