Even though I have my general class ham radio license, I have only been a ham for 1 year, and I am still trying to become familiar with amateur radio, but even I know that the antenna that typically comes with an HT isn't always the best. I purchased this antenna for when I am upstairs or downstairs in my QTH or when I am out when the Weather Watch Net or SKYWARN has been activated and I am away my mobile rig. I have already tested out my antenna and I am hitting the repeater like it's no one's business running low power in places my other original HT antenna wouldn't come in. I am very pleased with this antenna

I love the FT-60R but the rubber ducky is a POS, the radio just can't transmit pass your nose, I put this antenna on and I can hit the repeaters that I need to and RX has improved 100%, Well worth the money.

I have a small lightweight magmount and coupled with this antenna it's easy to pack in bag along with my handheld for use on a rental car when you get there.

This does a lot better job than the stock rubber duck. It does feel a little flimsy at the base as it is very thin and does whip around a lot. I am thinking of putting some heat shrink tubing around the base and bottom of antenna to try to stiffen it up a little.

What a great solution to a poor rubber duck. Like most (all) included antenna supplied with the HT radios the one that came with my VX6R was not so great. However I didnt know that till I purchased this SMA24 antenna and mounted it. What a difference. Impressive gain and performance Comet!

I've got this on my Yaesu FT-60r and it seems to be working better than the antenna that it came with. It is longer and whips around a lot but I can deal with that. I do have to disconnect it to fit it in my backpack but no big deal. Good price and seems durable. Recommended...

I use this antenna on my Yeasu VX-5R HT radio. I can hit all the local repeaters within a 20 mile radius from within the house. The antenna is very flexible to the point where you can tie it in knots ( which I would find no reason for). I can receive many shortwave radio stations and airline communications with this antenna with the flexibility of this Yeasu HT radio.

flexible and give you a little extra range. this is no miracle worker, but remember with antennas it is always a matter of how big and how high of the ground that gives you better results.

I used thin on my yaesu vx-6r, and it works great. It is perfect antenna if you intend to wear the radio on your belt.
