Absolutly a Beast of an antenna

I have one on my Kenwood, absolutely a beast of an antenna. Going to buy more for the other crew members

Great Range

I picked this antenna up for my Hytera TC-780 radio that I use for search and rescue and what a difference it makes. I would recommend this to anyone having range issues with their radio.

Finally A BigBoost Antenna for my radio

I have a Kenwood handheld radio and wanted a better antenna, finally there is one that works great with my radio.
