Lasted one year  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
The antenna stopped working. When I checked it with the Ohm meter the base shows open. I assume there is a coil in there that burned out.

Doesn't Meet Specs  Time owned: more than 12 months
While the Spec for this antenna is VSWR <1.5:1, I measure 2.9:1 using it with a mag mount groundplane. The resonant frequency of the antenna is 159MHz. It's a bit difficult to add length to this antenna.

Good short Antenna  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
This antenna works good, but I had to replaced it under warranty, for some reason water will get into the base of the antenna. Inside where the antenna screws on to the NMO.

I checked the SWR over the entire bands VHF and UHF and found very low SWR from 143 to 157 MHz and from 430 to 460 MHz so it will work for me on the commercial bands
