Good Antenna  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
I have had my D-140 since late last summer. I have mine on a Rohn 25G tower about 5 to 7 feet above a XR6. Current height of the antenna is 57 feet. It has really helped with 40 meter dx.

The only problem was that Force 12 sold me a bad balun. It took a couple of months to find out that it wasn't the antenna, switch or cable was the problem. I purchased a new balun from another vendor at a much lower cost then what Force 12 sells them for.

I complained to Force 12, and all they did was say, "how do you know it is the balun?" You would think that they could send you another balun after you have spent over $2,000 in antenna hardware. Oh, well, live and learn!!!

well made, plug and play  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Purchased the Delta 130 and 140. Force 12 made up a 4 foot boom that would handle both thus saving tower space. Easily assembled with clear instructions. Tuned the 140 on a balcony at 12 feet and had a small pile up. Can be mounted as close as 4 feet to other yagi's. Delivery is slow but worth the wait.
Can also be made into a 2 element yagi for future expansion.
