Great first HAM purchase for handheld  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
The difference in RX quality was astonishing once I replaced the stock rubber ducky on my transceiver with this antenna. I'm relatively green when it comes to HAM, but am genuinely satisfied with this purchase.

Great product!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I bought this antenna as an add-on to my HTX-400 uhf transceiver, which runs at a mere 200mw.

After several days of using this antenna all I can say is that it works really well. It's a big improvement over the stubby duck that came with the radio.

With this antenna extended I can now hear stations on the input of the local repeater.

The sections of the whip were hard to remove at first but a little Petroleum jelly applied and they were good to go.

This product really works well. I'm surprised that I haven't seen any other product reviews for this company here.

I would definitely recommend this product and company to other hams looking for great ht antennas that really work.
