Increase your VHF/UHF performance with this lightweight, high-performance Ed Fong DBJ-1C GMRS MURS LMR Commercial base station antenna kit.

Specifically tuned for GMRS, MURS, Public Safety & Commercial LMR uses, with 6dB gain at 152-157MHz and 460-470MHz over a stock handheld antenna, make this a must-have accessory for your handheld, mobile or base two-way radio station.

Has a nearly 5′ radiating element and a SO-239 female connector built-in, and comes with everything you need except a single 5′ length of 3/4″ Class 200 PVC pipe, which typically costs less than three dollars (available at most hardware stores – see common part numbers in specifications below), and a run of low-loss coax to your radio. The antenna comes in a small pouch and easily extends and inserts into your PVC pipe, includes both PVC end-caps, does not require any PVC cement or any tools, and is rated to 75 watts max (for use with mobile and base rigs). This is a 50 Ohm balanced antenna with true 1/2 wave radiating elements on BOTH bands, and does not require any ground radials.

Works with Ailunce, Wouxun, AnyTone, TYT, QuanSheng, Retevis, TERA & all other two-way radios with an external antenna connector.

Designed and patented by Dr. Ed Fong WB6IQN for permanent use on GMRS, MURS and Commercial (Public Safety or LMR) bands, the DBJ-1C offers greatly improved receive and transmit, when installed properly (as high as possible and in a free space, but will work in attics also), to get the most out of your two-way radio for recreational or emergency SHTF prepper communications. With its lightweight configuration and lifetime manufacturer’s warranty, this proven performer will last many years under normal and even most extreme weather conditions. Works great as a VHF/UHF Police, Fire, EMS, S&R, LMR, Commercial, and Business scanner antenna also!

Can be erected with a standard wall mount, eve mount, mast-to-mast mount, chimney mount, or creative PVC mount (using no more than the first 10″ of the antenna base), making deployment simple and flexible. This antenna performs really well due to the balanced 1/2 wave design, even with only .5 Watts on MURS or GMRS.

Note: This is a hand-made item and processing times may be as long as one week when out of stock. Contact us if you would like to check our stock availability before purchasing.

  1. First Impressions Are Excellent: Toughest part was finding the 200 PSI PVC tubing, but the local Lowes had it. It just took a bit of searching…

    Assembling the “kit” is beyond trivial. Just put the antenna into the 200 PSI PVC and put the plugs on both ends. Done.

    I started by measuring the antenna’s SWR on the GMRS repeater I use the most. Three separate readings and I measured 1.02 all 3 times. That’s dang near perfect SWR.

    Then I tried hitting the repeater from a couple locations in my (HOA-regulated) home. From the attic height, I got the best signal — no surprise. I called my wife at her office and she emphatically said it was the clearest she has heard me on GMRS, hands down.

    I have more testing to do, and I may well. deploy the antenna from my roof, assuming I can get HOA approval. Better is always better, after all. 😉

    So, I’m very happy with my purchase at this point. I’ll follow-up if anything should change my opinion.

    Oh, I should add that the service I got from BSR has been beyond stellar. Personal emails explaining the product was initially on back order. Mark is knowledgable and fabulous to work with.
