Supposedly a solution for limited space operation and obviously one expects such a product to be a compromise.
In the UK we have 4 metres (70 MHz) and 70cm is 430 MHz. This antenna was sold and described as covering 29, 70, 144 and 430 MHz. It's a fairly short randome at about 1.2 metres tall.
Whilst it was resonant on 144 and 430 MHz, checking ten metres showed it to be resonant at 33.5MHz. 4 metres was resonant at 72.5MHz so completely unusable on those two bands.
Avoid it. It won't do the job.
I got a refund.
