Neat idea, poor implementation  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
This product is a neat idea, but I was disappointed in the quality of the item received. The metal panel is fixed to a piece of painted wood, which you cut to size to suit your window. My piece of wood had a split in it, from one end running under the metal panel - it didn't happen in transport, because the factory applied white paint on the wood covered the inside of the split. Apart from the split, the piece of wood looked like rough lumber that had not been planed properly before painting. A motivation for buying this unit is to try to make the shack look smart, but a piece of split lumber in the window isn't going to help. It is fairly easy to replace the supplied piece of wood with something better, although disappointing that it's necessary.
A minor point is that the center conductors of the PL259 sockets are made from a continuous tube. If one of more of the sockets are not used, they will need to capped, to avoid insects coming into the house through the tube.
Overall, a neat idea, but disappointing in the quality of what is supplied from the factory.  
Product is in production.
