Not exactly a improvement over the stock dualband – High Gain Antenna for Walkie Talkies (BNC) Reviews

posted by Lukaaaa on 08/15/2012 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
- low price - some reception improvement over the stock dualband at 2 meters
Cons:
- no reception improvement in the air band - low reception improvement in 2 meters band - I excepted more - came bent almost in a circle
Other:
Well, though it has some glue residue on the middle base, it seems nicely made, especially the BNC connector. I didn't actually test the transcieving.
Bottomline:
Well, if you already have a dualband antenna that you use for wideband RX or RTX on 430 and 144 MHz bands then don't bother buying, because there is just slight improvement. If you don't have it, then it's a good deal. Also will do good for a scanner antenna.
