Does what it promises  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I really do not use 6 meters that much, and have a mutli-band dipole that covers 10 through 20 meters.

I found this antenna on e-bay for $19.98, and figured it would be worth $20.00 to have access to 6 meters since it's built into my radio.

The first time I made a contact with the antenna I only had it up about 20 feet and was suprised to hear a call from someone about 75 miles away on the other side of a 9000 foot mountain and was a solid 5/9. It was very much like talking to a local.

I have only used the antenna a couple of times, and understand for someone who knows what they're doing they could have probably saved a few dollars building their own. But with no experiance with building antennas this is a well built very good working little di-pole that covers the entire 6 meter band without the need of a tuner.
