Question Sirio Antennas?

I found some interesting antennas I'm considering for monitoring the aircraft bands, both commercial, and military. I'm curious if anyone is familiar with them, or is actually using them? They appear to be made well, and should stand up to Michigan's weather. I'd be interested in your opinions.

Thanks!
