Super Antenna! July 21, 2010
Reviewer: Mark from Lyndonville, NY United States  
I replaced an economy Shakespeare that came on my boat with this Galaxy and mounted it to a new location on top of the T-top of my center console. First time radio check brought a response from a location I know was 17 miles away over land and water from my driveway. The reception was clear and transmit power was 5x5 from the responder. I have put this antenna through a significant pounding on Lake Ontario over 3 to 5 foot steep waves and wind at speeds that would and have taken out a lesser economy model antenna. It is strong, efficient,  good looking, and well worth the extra cost of the Galaxy. It does require some finesse in the installation of the connector, soldering etc. Some electrical know how is helpful, but the included instructions are a help
