This is not a dual band ham dipole, as was previously stated. It's a $20 TV antenna. I made the mistake of buying one of their 6-80 Meter Verticals from them and it fell apart after couple of uses. The Amateur Radio Store is giving people discounts on purchases if they post a good review on e-ham. that's bad enough but their products are poorly constructed and don't work well. Don't buy from these guys.

This is NOT an amateur band antenna, nor is it a dipole. It's a worthless AM-FM broadcast pre-amplified antenna with an SMA connector on the end. Your duckie antenna inside your car will work better!

They're going to sell a million of these!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
This antenna is one of the most professional looking antennas I've ever seen; and the SWR tests out, plus it works really well! Molded plastics and thick etching on the elements make it a one of a kind antenna. Couldn't beleive I was holding an amateur radio antenna when I got it. I hooked it up to my HT and talked all week long on my local repeater to and from work. The antenna simply can't be seen as I put it on the opposite side of my sunvisor. The coax and cables are long enough for even my big truck, with plenty to spare. Installation had to be the easiest experience I had ever had with an antenna, with the peel and stick it on double sided backing. What a great design this antenna is! It puts the antenna where it needs to be but keeps me from having to run wires through the vehicle or make holes! This would go great in any high end vehicle such as a Porsche, Caddilac, or as the web site says at http://amateurradiostore.com it can be installed on the inside window at your house, apartment, or condo.
