A GOOD LOW PROFILE ANTENNA AT A GOOD PRICE!  Time owned: more than 12 months
This small black low profile antenna is the answer to anti antenna spouses, anti ham bosses and the dreaded homeowner associations. Very hard to see at a distance and easy to hide.

I have heard transmissions from my home repeater 100 miles away with it mounted on a skinny fender (most of the car is fiberglass). It worked well indoors stuck to exercise equipment as a ground. I have also used it as a indoor ground plane sticking it on a electrical box metal cover and using 12awg wire with alligator clips for radials (I hung it from a paddle fan with a piece of string). Good transmission reports. Very versatile for the low price.

Now the down side. If not removed correctly, by sliding or tilting and then pulling it off, the powerful magnet will come out of the plastic base housing. I fixed this by filling the base with black silicone gasket sealent and pushing the magnet back in. A perfect fix that makes the antenna even more water resistant.

This is a good useable stealth antenna at a low price.
