One band at a time, but great performer  Time owned: more than 12 months
I bought mine in 1982 and it's still going although I have lost one of the band tips and I've had to re do the heatshrink.
It was a great mobile performer for many years and worked well even on 80m and I recall an occasion when a blue corona appeared at the top of it while talking and driving. It gets less use these days but for high power mobile 400w or so it's good. Replaced it with an Autotune so I don't have to get out and change bands. If you see one at a hamfest buy it, it's a good antenna.  
Product is in production.
