Check with Bob Rod k5auw, he uses a Buddipole copy.  Seems to work OK.

Tom AB5XZ, David KE5KCW, and (Mike callsign TBD) will be operating portable in northern Colorado in July.
We plan to take a Kenwood TS-450 and lightweight MFJ power supply. What we have not decided on is the antenna. In the past, we have taken a long wire or a 20m dipole. This time, we are looking at the Buddipole product, mainly for its compactness and easy setup.

Can anyone on these list tell us about experience with the Buddipole?
