Great antenna!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Like the previous post, remember what this antenna is and you will love it. First off I am a big believer in wire antennas. All the shortened coil/trap miracle antennas can't hold a candle to a long piece of wire. That's why they are called compromise antennas. I have this Chameleon antenna strung between a deck and a tree in the back yard. It is only about 6 feet above ground running flattop. Put it up for the 4th of July with the intention of taking it down after the weekend. A couple weeks later and its still up. Having a ball working stations stateside and abroad using this antenna and an fT-817nd. Mainly working 80, 40 and 20 meters. Someone will probably suggest making your own.......and if you can.....do it. This antenna is not cheap....but I've spent a lot more for a lot less.

Bottom line is, antenna would probably work laying on the ground.....if you want on the air with an easy installation and great results....I'd suggest getting one. 
Product is in production.
