    I don't own one myself, two local hams use a Compactenna. one I talk to daily mobile to mobile. When he bought the antenna, about a year ago and installed he purposely did not tell anyone for about a month. There are places he was weak in to the local repeater, with his 5/8 wave antenna. I never heard any difference. When he switched antennas. He is still using it because he parks in a parking garage.
    The other ham bought one because my friend liked his so much

    I have a 2m/440cm COMPactenna. I don't feel like it performs as well in my area as a 1/4wave whip.

    I swap between it and a NMO mount whip. I feel like the Compactenna is very sensitive to placement. I wish I had an antenna analyzer to further investigate and get some hard data.
