Read the Ventenna Eham reviews carefully https://www.eham.net/reviews/detail/1089
One guy received a faulty antenna from a friend and send it in for repair and before he got it back he gave it a 5 of 5.

"$84.00 for a piece of ABS pipe?
I went to Home Depot and purchased a 4 ft. length of 2" ABS and mounted a $10.00 100W Moldor 144/440 mag mount antenna purchased on eBay inside using 2 zip ties. (Had to drill a couple a of holes in the $2 ABS pipe)I then slipped it over an existing vent on top of my 2 story. Fit great. Ran the cable to my radio and was surprised at the performance. Good idea but can be home brewed for about $15 if you already have a lenght of cable.
