I have not, but can tell you it will work well enough. A centre fed dipole is a centre fed dipole. I use dipoles in fan arrangement.. they work for me.

Not sure I would say they are good value for money, I make mine for a fraction of the selling prices I see. But if you want a ready made one and have the cash spare then don't think you'll be disappointed.

Cheer's mate, just getting back onto the airwaves myself, thing's have changed alot in 30 yrs lol, think this would be a cheap experiment to put up in loft or somehow put it up outside , less obvious to the neighbours .

I am currently using a similar dipole antenna.
With the one you're writing about, I see that the ends are fixed, so shortening and lengthening might not be straightforward.

A dipole is a dipole, and the easiest of antennas to make.  However, as others have said, shortening one made of stainless wire if hou don’t have the crimp tools will be a pain, and lengthening it even more troublesome.

If it’s going in the loft, you don’t need stainless either.  I run it outside on my OCF dipole to stop the bloody wild parrots  picking it to pieces.

Personally, I’d buy the centre (or make one) off of ebay, and use cheap wires (speaker cables, mains lead,or anything else) and tune to your requirements after using a length calculator.
