  1. Real Happy With it:

    I’ve recently tested this on a KG-UV9G with a repeater immediately on the other side of a major metropolitan area exactly 50 miles away. I compared it to the Smiley Slim Duck.

    With this antenna extended to the full 5/8 wave length, the clarity and signal strength was at least equal to the Slim Duck. When I then collapsed it to the 1/4 wave length there was a very significant improvement (+1 bars and solid (or “1 more far” lol)) on both RX and TX strength as well as improved clarity. The elevation difference between me and the repeater was totally negligible but still being able to deform the pattern of the RF “donut” this way yielded a great result at distance here and in a couple other locations. This method can be useful when there are significant elevation and/or clutter differences between you and other radios and stations. It’s trial and error much of the time but it works!

    Fully collapsed to 1/4 wave length it’s nice and compact and yes it still works and TX and RX just great that way too. You may not notice a difference at all, you may notice a small difference, YMMV.

    I understand some people’s apprehension to telescopic antennas and their fragility under heavy use (sitting on it) but this one has a well made flexible base that should mitigate that somewhat. I don’t think I’m going to have any breakage problems with it but, worst case scenario, I’ll simply switch back over to my other favorite Smiley Slim Duck antenna.

    I’m back to really liking the adjustability of telescopic antennas with this one so I’m keeping it permanently attached to this radio.

    Good quality product. Real happy with it.
