Assembling this antenna as easy, although the use of grommets to space the phasing elements away from the boom needs to be noted. Tuning the antenna needs to be done so you can check it off the ground, if you adjust it near the ground it won't be right in the air. Once done right does get out.
Note that the fixing to the mount is not between the elements, but like many of this design, behind the longer element on the boom.
