Fantastic value for this sturdy little rubber duck antenna. Covers 2 meters and 70 cm, usable for receive on other frequencies. Good build quality.
None at all
DX pictures show a "Nagoya" brand. Mine is "Diamond", RH701.
Package claims coverage of 144/430 MHz plus 120/150/300/450/800/900 MHz, with gain of 2.15 dBi on 430 Mh (but read MattInSocal's posting about specifying gain in dBi (isotropic)). 50 ohms impedance, max. power 10 watts.
Was surprised to see a noticeable and worthwhile improvement over the antenna supplied with my CQ-398 transceiver, even though this one is only 2 inches longer.
For me, this item easily merits 5 stars for price, ease of use, build quality and usefulness. At under $5 shipped (mine arrived in Australia 19 days after ordering), this is a must-have. Confidently recommended.
