|Customer Reviews for the MFJ-1724B.|
|From: Al McDonald MadMac 320|
|I purchase this 2 meter antenna for my Yaesu FT-2800M for a temporary antenna system. While waiting on the shipment for Memphis Amateur Electronics, I saw a Wilson 2m 5/8 wave antenna at the local electronic store. After purchasing the Wilson, my MFJ-1724B was on my porch. I decided to try the Wilson first and then the MFJ-1724B.|
The Wilson was tall and had the whip lean at highway speeds. I then tried the MFJ antenna and it was 19" long compared to the Wilson at 36". I tried the same calls I did with the Wilson and to my amazement the MFJ covered more ground. I paid $25.00 for the MFJ and $54.00 for the Wilson 2m. The MFJ was very attractive compare to the Wilson, Having a SWR of 1.1 straight out of the packaging!
Congrat's MFJ for a Job Well Done.

|I\'ve had this for over a year. It still looks|
and works fine. Magnet doesn't move around on freeway.
Price is right too. I'd recommend this to anyone looking
for a good performing antenna that doesn't cost a lot.

|I use mine mostly as back up on my Icom 706MKIIG. Gets the job done without any problems. Excellent on 440 side. Best I think for the money.|

|I bought this antenna partly based on the other reviews, dealer discussion and without a doubt this was the best purchase for my portable Kenwood in a mobile application. I can recommended this company's products from experience now.|

|I purchased this antenna in the fall of 2015. I used it with a HT with wonderful results right out of the package. I actually have two one on a Honda Accord that I drive hard. The other is on a 4x4 that has been is some brush. Both antennas have performed great, even at speeds that I won't publish here. I just purchased a dual band mobile so am thinking of at least one more for my 4x4 pickup. It certainly gets my recommendations.|MFJ-281SPEAKER, CLEAR TONE, 3.5 MM PLUG$12.95
