I've had mine for about a year now. I have used it while camping in the wilderness, bungee corded to trees, in storms, watched it fall and hit the ground many times, including breaking off the circular elements that are Epoxied back together. For mobile use, it is not fold-able beyond the strait dipoles, but the mounting bracket with wingnuts makes it easy to take off the mount. The mounts will rust, but nothing that causes issues. If there is a downside, it is very strict on direction for a signal or several stations, weather changes of any kind from humidity to temperature effect it, and works better in the middle of the night with more stations. But very clear when locked in. 40 mile range is more accurate in FLAT areas, not mountains. Never further in my experience or close to the 60 mile claims. A flagpole is the best mount if moving around. Adding a rotatory unit to turn the antenna will save time and some headaches. It seems to work best at a height above 10 feet from the ground. 20 is better, 30 is difficult when traveling but getting above trees, it should reach out further for signals. I almost always curse Chinese Products, but this has been one of the good ones.
