Very Good  Time owned: more than 12 months
Needed a quick SWL antenna and had a BFS-1 laying around from a beverage I used to have up, but moved and no longer have the space. (which worked good, by the way) Put a 48' piece of wire on it and drove a scrap piece if ground rod into the ground at a convienent spot. Found my old run of RG-6 75 ohm coax used for the old beverage and hooked everything up to the receiver.

In about an hour I had a serious SWL antena. I was very supprised and pleased with it. The receiver (Kenwood R-2000) was alive with signals from the AM broadcast to WWV to 15M ham band.

Seriously thinking of trying this antenna out on the rx only input on the rig for ham work.

Instruction booklet is very helpful suggesting ways to configure it in many different types of high impedance antennas. Recommended for sure. 
Product is in production.
