Water Water Water  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
The BALUN was GREAT when I first purchased it. After about a year I noticed that the SWR was unstable and bouncing all over the meter. When I removed and inspected the BALUN, I could hear water swishing inside when I shook the unit. I also notice slight water drops from around the eye-bolt (that was tight) after having it inside the house days later when it was shaken.

Since the BALUN was under a wood plank porch, it had some protection to the rain. However, if this unit would have been 100% exposed to direct rain, I am sure it would have failed much earlier. 
Product is in production.
