I have to disagree with that statement.  It was exactly a weekend
trivial project for me; I threw together a turnstile for 2 meters made
from plumbing supplies, hooked up my 2-meter allmode, and used my
existing HF rig and a 5/8-wave CB ground-plane antenna for 10 meters. 
It got me on RS-10 and RS-15 (in it's better days) with a decent enough
signal to make many contacts.
