Poor customer service

By Pbrbb61

from Bloomington IL

Comments about Midland® 18-258 27MHz Window Mount CB Radio Antenna:

Ordered this antenna and a magnet trunk mount antenna, I got the magnet mount antenna, this window mount was not in the shipment even though it showed that it had been shipped. Long story short, Radio Shack would not just ship a new one. Had to cancel it off original order, get a credit, then turn around and order it again. They wouldn't even ship it 2nd day., regular ground shipping. I doubt I order anything else from them.

    Comments about Midland® 18-258 27MHz Window Mount CB Radio Antenna:

    Make sure glass is completely clean inside and out before installing.Install in 60 to 70 degree weather or heated garage.Vehicle and outside temperature should match.Put one on new car in 2004,have run car thru 100's of car washes(always remove antenna from outside base before washing car),has been thru every kind of weather imaginable and is still attached to glass and works great.Buying new car and getting another one.Purchaser of old car wants it left on so they can use it for their CB radio.

              After reading the reviews that were mixed, I bought one anyway. On the new F 150 it is hard to find a way to mount other types and with this one it was easy and I did not have to run wire through the door well. Works well. Maybe the other
              people did not know how to tune it. Clear reception for me.

                Comments about Midland® 18-258 27MHz Window Mount CB Radio Antenna:

                This item looks good but upon installation you see it's drawbacks. It comes with the ability to tune it but no way to measure your progress or success. Bought one and in a week it fell off. I hadn't really had the chance to use it to see it's limitations so I bought another. Both times I followed the manufacturers directions with extra attention on the second installation. Alas, 6 days later on the way to work I hear a clunk as it falls off to the interstate and under the tires of the following vehicle. Don't waste your money.
