I am not happy with my Shakespear which is a second VHF antenna for my below deck radio. It isn't performance. It is cosmetics. Bad stainless rusts and makes a mess out of the coil. I have painted the coil, but it is still a mess. Will replace it sometime when I have nothing better to do. May have just been a bad run, but FWIW.
