In their case, it is an effect to be desired!  Grin

I have purchased the Larsen 2M 5/8's wave twice because the first one I bought years ago was great. This new one is a piece of junk. Cheap materials (threads stripped) plus never worked even as good as my magnet mount 2M antenna. I'm seriously considering taking the mobile unit out of my car and just stick to the cell phone. I'm tired of spending hard earned money for junk.

If your going to go for a compromise antenna anyway, why don't you try the Comet SB-15 triband antenna that is designed for 6 meters, 2meters and 70cm. It has good reviews on eHam.net and sells for $80!   Smiley

Are you sure you bought a genuine Larsen.

Two years ago, at about the time Radiall sold the Larsen division, a company in China was making duplicates, but only in looks. The whip for example was painted black, but there was not copper plating underneath.

The NMO2/70 I purchased two months ago from AES, looks like, and is made the same, as the one I bought in 1998.
