expensive tiny thing  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
I did not expect much of a 30 Euro ducky with 4,5 cm lenght, but yes, it works. No problem to hit the local 70 cm repeater from indoors in centre town which is about 15 km away. Comes in very handy if you dont need high performance. For putting the ht on the table and monitoring things it quite ok.

Sturdy but don't expect any gain  Time owned: more than 12 months
This tiny stub antenna comes with an insulating gasket to assure it fits snugly on the HT.

For repeater mountain top use or for the short hop into your mobile (or base) for cross banding this is the way to go. There's no flexible whip to bend or kink, and the stub's so short that it won't poke your side.

Certainly not intended for any gain, and not the first antenna to add to an HT antenna collection, this -2 db rated unit isn't a problem at all if you're close to the repeater. On receive, it's broadband capability is helpful if you're not too far away from the TX source.

Very 73,

dummy load  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
Might be better on 70cm, but on 2 meters I'm lucky to hit the repeater from the house with a remote receiver nearby. Might work ok on a scanner.

Very nice and good working little Antenna.  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I whas looking for a small Antenna for my, best friend, Kenwood TH-G71 handheld.
I went to ABE in Rotterdam and found this little (only 4 1/2 cm. long) SMA antenne.(see the picture with my TH-G71)
It's performance is remarkable for it's lenght, almost as good as the standard antenne.
Sometimes on 70cm in downtown Rotterdam (high buildings)even better.
It's big money for such a little anenna, but it works well.
