    Comments about Shakespeare Galaxy 5225-XP 8' Extended Performance VHF Antenna:

    Was having transmission problems with my vhf system. Narrowed it down to wire/antenna. Removed and found antenna broken so I replaced it with the 5225-xp. Amazing results. Sound is crystal clear(a lot better than before I even started having problems). Easy to install if your familiar. I hear traffic from everywhere now. Definitely recommend.

        Rates as high or slightly higher than the comparable Digital Brand 8' stick. The 5225XP is the best 8' that Shakesphere makes.
