from Good investmentEasy to install as long as you clean the matting surface! The ground wire is a bit short for my application (in a boat) but if you install within a car/truck, the ground wire should be long enough. Remember, in a car/truck the shorter the ground wire is the better as it will reduce tha chance of picking up the alternator whine.Reception prior to installation was poor but this antenna pulled in the same distant stations with enough signal that the radio was able to decode the stereo seperation and the Radio Station ID!!The only downside is the built in amplifier has a flaw, it will over power the strong signals. No selection on gain or bypass switch. I guess I will not need that feature when the boat is out to sea!
