Very happy with this antennaReview by Chad
Overall very happy with this antenna. The receive is excellent. The welds and construction are awesome!! Only down side for me, is that the whip is pretty heavy. The aluminum shaft is fairly light by itself but the whip is non tapered and is .200" thick all the way up, which puts a lot of torque on the mounting point/bracket. I'm going to make up my own bracket out of 1/4" thick steel, to replace the thinner one I'm using on my bed rail now.
Even with the coil sitting about 5-6 inches behind my cab along the bed rail, the SWR's are flat on 1 through 40. I was surprised and that was with no trimming at all. On a mountain top at night, I was just able to talk to a guy about 30-35 miles away, at 15 watts AM. I could hear him clear as a bell. He had trouble hearing me I guess because I wasn't using a power mic and because my signal is somewhat directional due to wear I mounted it, which would have sent the signal more in the opposite direction he was. On the roof this thing would get out a lot better IMO but I'm not drilling a hole in the roof for a little more get out ability.
I would probably buy one of these again, as it works as good, maybe even better on receive than a 102" mounted on the roof, which I had on a older truck way back when.
I give it a 4.5 but I rounded it up to 5 stars. If it had an option for a lighter tapered whip, I would give it a 5+ rating. I have no doubt this thing could handle lots of watts, like they say.
