Excellent performing GMRS mobile antenna. Upon my testing I found the (out of package) SWR measurements at an amazing1:09 ! No tuning. Well designed and built solid in my opinion. Highly recommend the MXTA 26 for serious GMRS mobile users.
Found out that I had cut my old antenna to short. Did not use swr meter and have had nothing but problems for years. These antennas are pre tuned, so just attach it and turn the radio. I have another one on order. Works great.
I really liked the idea of a whip style, 6 gain antenna on the rear of the jeep. Anything mounted on the front gets beat up or knocked off by branches. I'm told this anttena will not function out side of the hood or metal roof areas. The thinkers at midland need to round table this and work out the hitch so the jeep can go back to its original orgins of the whip back mule. I bet Martha Steward would approve!!!! Other than that, its a good looking, well made, affordable, 6 gain anntena that would be happier on the rear quarter pannel or tailgate.
