Great for its size.  Time owned: more than 12 months
I've had a couple of them for a few years and it is my ultimate backup antenna. I've used it on vacation from hotel room balconies, on board ship, even (although NOT recommended) on a mag-mount for mobile. For its size, it does a decent job. Never had a problem tuning it up. Used it on my 817 while walking around and made some good contacts into the Midwest. It holds its own when compared to small monoband antennas and has the feature of being multiband. It is a a short antenna and is not going to compete with a full size vertical, especially on the lower bands but it is better than no antenna at all and better than some other short antennas. My only caveat is to be careful with the BNC connector. It is as sturdy as any but, by its nature, not strong. I never broke mine (or the part it was attached to) but I was careful.
