Okay, I'll have a full review here soon. I'd like to do more around town driving first to see how well the reception is after installing the "stubby". I'll say this, I haven't noticed a lose of reception yet and noticed a channel I had problems picking up before with my homemade shortened antenna is now picking up as good as a factory antenna if not better. Well packaged, easy to install and great quality product. It's sturdy as can be. So far I'm digging the looks and performance.
