Default Antenna patent, (Fluid motions Steppir Antenna)

I notice that the STEPPIR antenna patent is still "Pending"
I thought that "pending" meant that the patent has been awarded
and awaiting printing! Fluid motions have been stating Patent pending
for more than a few months ( year)now and I have yet to see a release.
Anybody have any info on this ? I also noticed that another thread on
unconventional antenna design that the news release also stated
"patent pending"!
Has " patent pending "replaced the term "patent applied for" or has
the revised patent procedure and the USPTO fallen flat on its face ?

Some take 7 years; some take 8 years; some take 1 year.

No significance to 4.

Sometimes companies use "patent pending" to discourage people from copying the
design when in fact no application has been filed. If you ask for a copy of
the application, application number, etc. and they refuse to give it to you,
that could be a tipoff...

If so, "patent applied for" must be _really_ old -- "patent
pending" showed up on all sorts of devices as far back as the '40s.
