The antenna cost me AU$120 plus $128 shipping. It arrived in ten days via FedEx but it's sometimes painful to pay more in shipping that the price of the item.
Boxed nicely in cardboard completely covered in tape. The tubes were protected with plastic and foam so it arrived in excellent shape and does look to be pretty good quality.
There are no instructions in the box but on the ad there are pictures and a machine translated note mostly about the counterpoises.
It goes together pretty well and the size of the aluminium tubes forces you to put it together the right way. The matching stubs are clearly labelled so I don't think you can go wrong.
