Compact – 10W Short Antenna for Walkie Talkies (SMA) Reviews

posted by ky145 on 02/20/2013 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
This makes my Baofeng UV-5R much more compact in the bag! Pulls in signals fairly well for the size too.
Cons:
The base does not make full contact with the base of the radio connector - so it wiggles a bit which concerns me if things shift around in the bag - hopefully the connector won't sanp
Other:
It does not work as well as the stock antenna or the 701, but it is MUCH more compact, so if you can't have a big rubber antenna sticking out somewhere this is a good alternative
Bottomline:
Get it if you need a compact antenna
