Not Very Good  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
I bought this antenna for my FT-60. I tested it against the stock antenna and and my long Comet antenna.
It was worse than the factory antenna on VHF.
I gave it to a friend of mine to try out.
He reported that is was worse than his VX-7r stock antenna on VHF and could not bring up any repeaters on UHF.
I have sent an email to OPEK regarding this antenna. I think that perhaps it was packaged wrong from the factory. I am waiting for their response.

It is not dual band  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
It is a great VHF antenna. However, its UHF capability was far less than the stock antenna on my VX-5R. It would not even bring up a local repeater. I kept it for my VX-150 and it works fine.
