Don't go with cheaper alternatives. March 7, 2017
Reviewer: MH from in Maine  
For a wide spectrum antenna, this one is tough to beat for the money. I cannot speak for the lower VHF bands as I do not monitor them, but for the 140-170, 400 and 800 bands, this is worth the investment. For those seeking high quality engineering and performance, indoor, outdoor or mobile use, and sleek appearance, the Spectra is the one to buy.

Austin Spectra Mobile Antenna September 12, 2016
Reviewer: Arthur Patterson from Clearwater, FL United States  
over all a very good antenna, was hoping it would bring in some of the signals clearer as some of the reviews said.

Antenna works great July 23, 2015
Reviewer: rick kulmann from Wolcott, CT United States  
I just installed this antenna on my vehicle using the magnet mount and its used for a uniden 996xt scanner which i monitor low,uhf,vhf,800 ,and digital systems and it works great pulling in some faint signals.I was using a radio shack mobile magnet mount antenna and it worked good,but this one is much better.Just keep in mind several factors are involved when using a mobile antenna such as tall buildings in the area or high mountains and if you live in a valley area.no antenna is perfect when it comes to these types of factors,but you have a better chance of picking up all types of radio bands with this model antenna.i love it.

Sweet antenna December 28, 2011
Reviewer: S. Hetzel from newport beach, CA United States  
This mobile antenna mounted on my roof of my vehicle works so great...chp VHF low 42mhz pulls great into my bc 15x. All bands sound amazing.   I did have to paint it flat black since copper was showing.  The antenna is made with quality parts and attention to detail.  I had to tune the low band for California highway patrol.  I give this antenna 5 stars.

Spectra for police? October 17, 2011
Reviewer: Tim Townsend from Seaside, CA United States  
I have this antenna and the one from Comtelco.  The Comtelco outperforms the Spectra at 155mhz where most police/fire channels are found on the west coast.  The Comtelco does need additional sealing as rain gets in past the rubber washer (minor problem).  I can't testify about the use of the antenna at other frequencies.
