A Good Multiband Performer  Time owned: more than 12 months
I've had this antenna up for about 3 years now in an inverted vee configuration with the apex up about 35 feet. I've worked lots of DX with it on 30m through 10m from Japan, Korea, Australia, New Zealand, all over Europe, Asiatic Russia, South America, various Pacific and Atlantic islands and lots of other places, all using this antenna - well over 100 countries (but unfortunately not all confirmed yet for DXCC). I also use it on 40m nets and some on 75m, though it is not the best performer on 75m.

With a tuner, I have no problem working all ham bands from 80m through 6m with this antenna. With such capability, at about $50 it is probably the best antenna bang for the buck that I have ever owned. This antenna in the inverted vee configuration has withstood many storms and still keeps on ticking! A couple of times some rather large branches have fallen on it and broken one wire or the other, but it was easy to splice the two ends together and get it back in operation. So far the center insulator and connections have held up well.

All in all, I highly recommend this antenna or its cousin, the MFJ-1778 G5RV.  
Product is in production.
