Nice 10M mobile antenna  Time owned: more than 12 months
Owned my Big Momma for over 10 years. It has been installed on at least 4 different cars and works great. Presently using a magnetic mount stuck on the trunk lid (lost the mount that came with it). The center pin in the bottom of the coil is farther inside than most other NMO mounts. I put a small stainless steel nut on top of the center contact the male portion of the NMO mount and then slowly screwed the coil on. I had to do this because without the nut, there is no contact of the center pin of the antenna to the center contact of the mount it is screwed into. I've worked Jamaica, Puerto Rico and countless others with 25 watts from upstate NY. Whip is about 48" long including shock spring and the coil is 2" in diameter by 3" tall.
