Poor quality  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Bought this for a hood mount application. Has maybe a 40degree swivel; comes with UHF antenna mount, and low-loss coax cable feed to a PL259.

Four hex screws fix it to the desired trunk lip or hood. Three more hex screws (wrench included) fix the angle desired. I didn't get that far. All three of the hex c-bores that pin the angle desired immediately stripped. And I'm gentle, and have been assembling things for a half-century. Gazing into the bores, they were destroyed by my firm (not Superman) insertion. I never felt a thread catch. I'm retapping the bores to see if I can salvage it. I suspect cheap casting, but can't be sure, save that I thought I saved money, but apparently did not. These are my experiences, yours may vary.
