    1 of 5 Can't find a use for this antenna June 19, 2015
    Reviewer: John LeMay from Toms River, NJ United States  
    I bought this thinking I would see an improvement from a telescoping antenna vs the Uniden stock duck on my 436. The performance was about equal to the stock antenna. Since it required an additional step to extend before use the stock antenna was a better choice. On my Homepatrol the antenna when installed faces the listener and cannot be oriented upward to vertical as it does not pivot. In this orientation as one can image the antenna does a poor job. I just can't figure out anything useful to do with this one.

    4 of 5 WSMA-889 January 6, 2015
    Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Copley, OH United States  
    I purchased this antenna for my BCD436HP. It has improved reception some but not as much as I had hoped. I live in a fairly well populated area so reception isn't a big issue. I was trying to improve reception in the fringe areas.
    I originally wanted the WSMA-881, but it has been out of stock for some time now.

    With that said, what I really like about this antenna is the swivel base which allows me to lay the scanner down on its back and point the antenna up. With the antenna screwed firmly into the scanner mount, it doesn't point straight up at 90 degrees, but close enough. This is why I rated it 4 stars instead of 3.

    3 of 5 wsma-889 review October 15, 2013
    Reviewer: Michael Jensen from Des Moines, IA United States  
    Reception seems good with this antenna but it doesn't swivel like the antenna that comes with the Home Patrol scanner which makes positioning it difficult
