Great of modification  Time owned: more than 12 months
I wrote a review earlier under my old callsign PD0LUR. I still have this monoband rotary dipole and use it regularly. A point of concern is the way of connecting the coils to the radiator tubes. The manufacturer have chosen to use pop rivets to connect the coil wire under it and that is a culprit after time. I have modified it by crimping silver plated Amp lugs and connect them with Stainless steel M5 bolts en nuts on the Alu tubes. Since then i have no issues anymore and the aerial is performing excellent.
This modification should have been done right away when i bought the arial but i did not know about this shortcomming then. Therefore this warning and 4 out of 5 points for the review. 
Product is in production.
