It works really good for 150 mhz and somewhat less on 450 mhz....for 800 mhz it completely sucks....low band 40-50 mhz stuff aint very good either but better than 800 mhz....I drive 18 wheeler NC and TN so I pretty much have it all programmed in and was kinda disappointed in this antenna but it is hard to get a good antenna to cover everything....To sum up, This antenna is best for VHF....Hope this helps...

Can I ask a stupid question? Why would you order the antenna first and THEN ask in a forum if it's any good?

No, no problem. I can live with that answer. I guess when I am considering buying something, I would ask for opinions first and then make my decision with my money. It's a lot easier to fold your money over and put it back in your pocket, than it is to get it back once it's spent.

The internet is full of garbage and I much rather have regular forum users weigh in their comments than reading it on a review page that can have no name whatsoever attached to the comment. Call me crazy.
