It beat the 6M Ringo.  Time owned: more than 12 months
I actually found this to be a decent 6M FM antenna. I had this on my 6M Repeater first, then later went to the Cushcraft AR6 Ringo. My friends told me that the MFJ did way better signal-wise for reaching them. One thing thought, this antenna seems brittle at the base of the vertical radiator. Other than that, no complaints.

Got one FREE!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Just your average ground plane antenna design tuned for 6 meters. Works OK. Now if only the six meter band would be open when I get time to use it. Oh, well. The VHF/UHF contest is coming soon.
BTW, when I was testing it on the air with a friend about 15 miles away, it did wipe out my non-cable ready TV. Ahh! Ham radio as it should be!
