Customer Reviews

Great performing antenna, and looks good too.Great performing antenna, and looks good too.The reason for giving this antenna 4 vs 5 stars is an issue with using this antenna on a 5 inch NMO magnet mount, and the fact that the antenna whip leans to one side when shortened and the set screws are tightened. Utilizing the MFJ magnet mount, the lowest SWR I can achieve is 2.5-3:1 at its factory resonant frequency of around 26.5 Mhz. The problem seems to arise from the lack of a good ground using the magnet mount.When the antenna was installed on the roof of my 00 Silverado using a standard NMO through roof mount, I was able to achieve a perfect 1:1 SWR ratio, verified using an MFJ antenna analyzer. I then shortened the antenna whip for a perfect match on CB CH19. Testing this antenna around town, I am able to receive and transmit further than I was previously able to with a 4 foot firestik mounted on the tool box of the truck. The difference in performance is most likely due to the generous ground plane on top of the cab along with the added height. The firestik only rose above the cab about a foot and was mounted close to the cab.Overall, the antenna looks great, and works excellent for its intended purpose as long as you're not mounting it on an NMO magnet mount. The issue is most likely related to a poor ground connection with the magnet mount as I've noticed a change in SWR if the mounting location changes. Buy this antenna, a proper NMO mount, and don't be scared to drill the 3/4 hole to mount it correctly.4Nice antennaThis is a fairly well-built antenna. It seems to be a little thin so it has a fairly narrow bandwidth. And it seems as though it may be a little temperamental in placement. Best placed in the middle of a large area like the middle of the top of the cab. Make sure you check SWR with an SWR meter or antenna analyzer at your mounting location in an open area. I installed this antenna in a steel building shop, trimmed and tuned with an antenna analyzer. Then pulled the vehicle out into an open area and the SWR was all off. Luckily it was long so I could trim and tune again. The but chart provided with the antenna seems to be a little off so cut and tune to your specific mounting location. I was able to tune to the center of the band at VSWR of 1:1 with the band edges at 1.5:1 so it is clearly acceptable as a CB antenna.The only negative is that in shipping they took the antenna and folded it over into a box that was too short. This, of course, bent the steel whip and it took me about a half an hour trying to straighten the spring steel out.5Great lightweight antenna.First radio check with stock radio was about 5 miles. Trimmed at least an inch or more off for resonance in middle of 11 meter band. Sweet about 1.2 or 1.3 on trunklip mount of left side of Toyota Corolla. No easy way to tighten whip to base though. You risk marrying the finish on the piece that screws into the base coil.4Best I've had yetLove this antenna! Excellent reception. Best SWR, almost flat. Easy to remove for the car wash.5Much better than some of the reviews indicateI purchased this NMO antenna for a lip mount on the back hatch of my van. In that application, it has an SWR of 1.2:1 on Channel 9 and 1.4:1 on Channel 35 straight out of the box. Since I received mine in a 4x4" cardboard box that was just as tall as the antenna, it arrived in perfect condition. I've not taken any road trips yet, so can't report on radiation patterns, sensitivity, etc. but it sounds good on my 1970 Realistic 10 6-channel radio. Hope this helps...5Browning NMO CB antennaThis is the NMO antenna for CB and 10 meters. The recieve is great and the transmission is great too. The SWR is really good 1.1 to 1.4 depending where you're at on the bands. The antenna is made sturdy and can withstand higher wind speeds. Make sure that you have a good base for your antenna. Great job!!!5Very good nmo antenna.Listed on the package are lengths for certain resonance freq's. Super helpful. Mine is mostly ALL black, to include the whip itself. This is nice, as I hate chrome and silver shiny things attracting unwanted attention. Set screw wrench is included.5Cutting chart 3/8" short for my install with magnet mountIt seems to be well made. I set this up as an emergency spare/portable on 11m with a magnetic base. The cutting chart was a bit short for my installation in the middle of the roof on a Toyota Tacoma extended cab truck. It tunes well with my antenna analyzer with VSWR of 1.6 at the low end of the band, gradually slopes down to 1.1 at ~ 27.200 MHz and then gradually slopes up to 1.4 at the high end of the band.4Doesn't work with trunk lip or hatchback mount.On my second one of these in the past three months, and yet to get either to work. SWR is 3+ no matter what. Followed the manufacturer trimming guide and it got worse on both antennas. Using Nagoya mount, which works fine with my VHF/UHF NMO antennas. Recabled the mount, still no good.Replaced the second Browning with a Larsen NMO CB antenna and it was SWR 1.7 on ch20 with no trimming, out of the box. Twice the price, 1000% better performance.I'd stay away from the BR-140 unless you are planning to drill holes and fiddle a lot.1Tunes easily to under 1.5 SWR.Installed this antenna on a 2019 4Runner with a tram 1246-B Trunk Antenna Mount NMO With PL-259. I installed the antenna mount on the front hood passenger side and ran the cable back to the driver side under the hood attached to the hood and thru the driver side fire wall. I removed 3 off the antenna to get the swr down to 1.3 on both channels 1 and 40. The initial swr reading before trimming was above 3. The mount easily grounded to the hood without needing additional ground strap and confirmed with a volt meter continuity. This antenna and cable are connected to a uniden 505xl cb radio. All work well together. Much easier to tune than a fire stick and love the tram mount as well.5
