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.

Best Antenna on the Market! July 29, 2011
Reviewer: Chris Terry from Auburn, CA, United States  
I've been using/installing scanners and two-way radios in a mobile environment for over 10 years.  I was looking for something that would perform well between 40mhz & 50mhz but still work reasonably well at uhf.   This antenna completely exceed my expectations, even out-performing my mono-band antenna.  

Following the instructions I tuned the antenna for 40-50mhz, which shortened the antenna by about 4 inches.  Friends you can't go wrong with this antenna.  It's a little more expensive than the others, but well worth every penny.  I plan on purchasing more for other vehicles in the fleet.

Good Mobile Antenna January 16, 2011
Reviewer: Kieran O'Hagan from Carmel, NY United States  
Five stars for five star performance. I am particularly impressed with the performance on the VHF Low band. Putnam Co fire still uses low band, and I have no problem hearing mobiles in the eastern half of the county. VHF Hi performance...listened to my sheriff department while I was out in Newington, a good fifty miles off. UHF and 800 performance is excellent as well. All around good all band antenna that served me well driving out to Idaho and back. A worthwhile investment for the serious mobile monitor.
