It is needed for the quest X-2: Strange Transmissions!, but is not a quest item and can be dropped right after obtaining it, as the blue print is already transferred to Dr. Klein.
If your Strength level does not meet the recommended level for this weapon (7), then the attack speed of the antenna is painfully slow, and could possibly make it the slowest weapon in the game, regardless of the fact that the super sledge is 5 lbs heavier than it and attacks faster.
As an EMP melee weapon, it is relatively powerful against machines like robo-scorpions, which it often knocks back with each hit.
