    Comments about Shakespeare 8 6db Economy VHF Antenna:

    Perfect for inshore/offshore use in Southern California. I'm honestly impressed with the amount of range I get out of this antenna. And you can't beat the price. The instal was easy and quick. I'm sure this antenna will last me a long time.
