eh  Time owned: more than 12 months
I bought these antennas years ago as an alternative to the more expensive Larsen antennas. They worked pretty good, but recently I've noticed that their quality is going downhill, especially with the coax cable shielding, its absolutely awful. Cutting their cheap PL-259 crimped connecter off, it looked like there were less than 10 strands of shield around the center jacket.

I bought a similar one with a trunk mount for the wife's car 2 years ago. The mount did not fit and I tried to return it, no way says lakeview, once purchased it's yours. I ended up sending it back and having them convert it to a mag mount version. When I received the antenna back, the SWR was infinate and the antenna useless !!!

Do yourself a favor and try the Hustler MX series antennas !!!
