Comments about Shakespeare Stowaway Emergency VHF Antenna:

We are cruising aboard a sailboat and purchased this antenna as a back up. A bad cable connection inside our mast or bird damage to the antenna could easily happen. Having a quick replacement gives us peace of mind. We wish there was a longer cable version available so the unit could be hoisted up a halyard 20 feet or so for better range.

Comments about Shakespeare Stowaway Emergency VHF Antenna:

Great little spare antenna for a VHF marine radio. I use the antenna with a GPS Standard Horizon. It picks up Sea Tow radio check in the dock, WX and 16 Coast Guard. I originally purchased the antenna to trouble shoot a fault I was having with my mast antenna. Downside - it's and expensive accessory to have in the off chance you'll need it.
