          Comments about Shakespeare Galaxy Ratchet Mount:

          I have this installed on my Trophy 1802 with an 8 foot antenna. The bottom ratchet will not stay tight, vibrating loose, causing the antenna to fall sideways. No amount of loc-tite or 5200 could solve this. Go with the heavy duty version. This mount looks great, but does not work for my situation.
