I've run one for over a decade. One advantage it has over a long wire is that it has no nulls unlike the long wire. You may find that in many directions where there's a null on the longwire it absolutely beats the pants off the long wire by several S points, especially the higher you get in frequency as with a long wire some nulls can be as deep as -30dB. As a long wire will also exhibit lobes with decent gain once it's above a wavelength long on a frequency you may find the Cobwebb is weaker than the long wire in certain directions where there's a lobe pointing.
