I had a firestick that was not very broadbanded. 1.7 on 1 and 40 and 1.1 on 20. Switched to this antenna and 1.1 on all 40 channels and my transmit and receive are way better. Best mobile antenna on the market.
I had a firestick that broke. Thought I would try something new so I bought a skipshooter 4' and swr on ch1 is 1.2 and ch40 is not even moving my meter. When I am talking people swear I am running a amp.
