Customer Reviews

Great little antenna Using on my hand held uniden scanner. An improvement over the stock one when I tested a few frequencies.Did not test all and I will since the long length may not have an advantage on the higher frequencies.Do not mind the flex of it. It does whip around a bit but I do not mind. So far so good and I like this!Update: So far so good works better than stock. 400 range and 800 work good. Need to test more and I am getting another one from another brand so will so how they all perform and update my rating accordingly. But if you need a long whip this is well made!Update: I have the Diamond 77 which looks great and is firmer but I keep going back to this one since its lighter and works great.Would recommend! 5Really like the Comet SMA24's Bought a few (SMA24 Female) then I had to buy a few more (SMA24 Male).I like how they are thin, light, flexible, and works.Main use is for VHF. I have a variety of antenna's of several HT's and this one is up there with the better ones.There is a gap at the base on one of the HT's (Yaesu FT-60R), but my other antenna's do the same thing for that radio. Fit on the other radio's are just fine. There is a small rubber flat gasket that came with each antenna but that doesn't do it for the FT-60R. Other radio's didn't need it.Especially like the Comet SMA24 on my Yaesu VX-2 (nice fit and doesn't make it so top heavy compared to other antenna's I have for it in comparable length), Yaesu VX-3R & Baofeng UV-3R Plus. The mini size HT's benefit from the light weight of the antenna's for going longer that the stock length.Quality/finish is nice and appear the same for each.Shipping/Receive - got them fast (2-day prime). 5What your 144/440 mHz HT needs Well made and does the job; a big performance improvement over the "rubber duck" that comes with your radio. Just be prepared to allow for the antenna's length as you move around (it can poke into things you'd rather not poke). 5For Yaesu FT-60 Fits the connector but the base of the antenna doesn't go all the way down into the top of the radio, leaving part of the connector exposed. Not a big issue, I just don't care for how it looks. I have 3 other radios with either Diamond or Nagoya antennas on them and they completely cover the connectors. 3Not Good for APRS (146Mhz and up as indicated) I tried this on APRS and it's okay. Very flexible and doesn't strain the fragile antenna connector on Kenwood radios. I made the mistake of not reading 146Mhz. Remember that APRS is 144.390 in the US. 4Five Stars I get good signals on my ID-51 with this antenna. Better than the stock rubber ducky. Would recommend. 5Great antenna. THIS IS NOT THE FEMALE CONNECTOR Great antenna. THIS IS NOT THE FEMALE CONNECTOR. I've got these on several of my radios and am convinced that it is the BEST whip antenna you can get for a handheld radio. I use mine while hiking in the backcountry and this is the best you can do. When compared to the Diamond, I'd give this one a 10/10 and the Diamond whip 9.5/10. It's really close, but this one has done better in the tests I've conducted. It's really flexible and doesn't break when going through thick brush. You can even tie it in a knot and it'll go back to it's normal shape. Great antenna! 5Great mobile antenna! I use this antenna on my Yeasu VX-5R HT radio. I can hit all the local repeaters within a 20 mile radius from within the house. The antenna is very flexible to the point where you can tie it in knots ( which I would find no reason for). I can receive many shortwave radio stations and airline communications with this antenna with the flexibility of this Yeasu HT radio. 5Not sure if I received GENUINE COMET SMA-24 I have 2 other Comet SMA-24 antennas which were purchased from Ham Store in person. Both had identical packaging and included flyer with Japanese writing and rubber O-ring in white packaging. This one received is in shorter packaging than my other ones. This one received also lacked the flyer and O-ring! Sending back for even exchange and will see what is received. As far as the genuine ones that I have, they perform with excellence and although taller, the thin design makes the additional antenna height worth it. Just not made for storing in car console or pocket due to length. Great on increasing distance for Amateur Radio simplex and repeater access over longer distances.UPDATE: Received replacement, authentic and included paperwork + O-ring. Happy Camper Now 3HT Antenna Even though I have my general class ham radio license, I have only been a ham for 1 year, and I am still trying to become familiar with amateur radio, but even I know that the antenna that typically comes with an HT isn't always the best. I purchased this antenna for when I am upstairs or downstairs in my QTH or when I am out when the Weather Watch Net or SKYWARN has been activated and I am away my mobile rig. I have already tested out my antenna and I am hitting the repeater like it's no one's business running low power in places my other original HT antenna wouldn't come in. I am very pleased with this antenna 5
