I don't know anybody who's bought the satellite antennas, but I do know some guys who've bought the recent HF antennas.
Quality control is typical MFJ, with parts missing, holes drilled wrong, poor instructions, etc.
I tend to be gun shy with about 90% of MFJ products. I know too many people that have been burned by their stuff. Some of their products are good, but their QC is *always* suspect. My antenna analyzer works perfectly, but then I cross my fingers every time I put the batteries in it!
Just my $.02
