I got it last year and it worked until it got crushed when I rolled my truck put it on my car this year and it still works not surprised good quality very nice antenna
good antenna just what i needed i had to trim to get swr down on the high channel but all is good
it shoots skip, i'm happy : )
As always, right channel radios had excellent customer service and fast shipping.
I drive a jeep with a permanent CB setup, but I can’t always take it everywhere. When we decided to visit family this Xmas I borrowed my brothers car, which is a massive SUV. I bought this antenna to go along with a cheap, portable, Midland model 75-822. Install could not have been easier. Took me 15 minutes, in the dark, the morning we left. SWR is easily changed by very easy and convenient tuning on this antenna.
On the SUV, the antenna reaches a decent range. It usually does about 5-9 miles on flat open ground with a clear sky. Both send and receive signals are very clear, and there is very little static since i have mine mounted on the center of the roof, away from the engine and moving parts of the vehicle. Surprisingly, I was complemented twice for the send clarity of this setup. As it turns out, cheaper can sometimes be better.
Obviously the range is less on certain terrains. I have talked skip from coast to coast with this setup, but only on several occasions where conditions and terrain could not have been more perfect.
Now, this antenna is VERY nice, for the money. It has a place on vehicles that need a medium-shorter, non-permanent antenna. Maybe you’re going through parking garages etc like I was on my way down the east coast or you plan to only use it for a portion of the week at a time. Maybe you’re going to install it only when driving long distances and remove it once home.
If this is you, then I highly recommend this antenna.
If you want something permanent, or you want the best signal-range possible, go with a larger antenna or a permanent Stainless Steel 102” whip. Just know that doing so in either case, will make it harder to remove, and it will keep you from parking anywhere unless it’s outside and away from trees. (This includes parking garages, drive-throughs, home garages, car washes, “some tunnels in my experience”, etc).
I’ll end my ramble here by saying that I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS ANTENNA.
It’s well worth the price for a quick and easily portable setup. Especially when paired with the midland 75-822. I’d buy again in a heartbeat.
My grandson loved it
