              Comments about VHF Antenna Centennial 5102 8FT, 6dB:

              I upgraded from a hand-held radio to a console mounted unit requiring a fixed antenna and the Shakespeare antenna I chose was the easiest to mount on my T-Top and easy to set up.

              Service and delivery comments:

              My delivery of the 8 foot Shakespeare antenna was very prompt and everything that accompanied it was well packaged and protected.
