Confusing promotional material May 1, 2019
Reviewer: Robert Bass from Annapolis, MD United States  
I recently purchased a new Garmin AIS 800 and an Icom 506M.  I wanted to purchase a new antenna that could be shared through the splitter that is included with the AIS. Splitters are commonly used on recreational vessels.  Please note that this antenna is described as a “vhf/ais” antenna and the specifications say the antenna is tuned for 168 MHz. This is a frequency between channel 16 and the channels for AIS, which seemed to reinforce the promotional information. When I received the antenna, the included literature indicated the antenna is for AIS use only. I called Shakespeare and was told that was correct and that they do not recommend sharing antennas between marine vhf and AIS transceivers.  I feel Shakespeare and retail sellers should clarify if this antenna is truly not intended for shared “vhf/ais” use through a splitter and update their promotional material accordingly. The antenna may end up working great, but  I scored it as three stars because of the confusing marketing.

Shakespeare Antenna November 21, 2018
Reviewer: Allan from Bellingham, WA United States  
Shipped and arrived as scheduled in a strong tube. Decided to go with the combo VHF/AIS in case I change my radio in the future. Only gave 4 stars as I will not be able to test the antenna until spring.

Antenna Shipping August 17, 2018
Reviewer: Bob Moeller from New England  
After checking numerous sites for the best prices, I came across Hodge's. They beat all others except those selling used equipment. I paid a bit extra for the quicker shipping and the first part of my order arrived very promptly. Unfortunately, it didn't appear that UPS is equipped for or happy about shipping an eight foot antenna. The antenna arrived in a broken shipping tube and the antenna itself was crushed and unusable. No fault of Hodge's but I called to report it. The damaged antenna was picked up a few days later and, a few days after that, the replacement arrived, again in a damaged tube. Thankfully, this antenna was fine. Thank you Hodge's for taking care of this.

a bit of a pain March 3, 2018
Reviewer: wm domb from Palm Beach  
Does not come with finished end and forces the installer to put on the ferrule.  Poor quality instructions.  Good performance once done.
