Product Description

OPEK 601 - Mini Mag Mount Dualband Amateur Radio Antenna

Most late model vehicles use passivated stainless steel glass which impedes the transfer of RF energy. This is most noticeable when operating a low-power handheld radio from inside an automobile. When traveling on the outer edge of a repeater coverage area it is best to locate your handheld radio's antenna outside your vehicle. The OPEK AM-601-SMA is prefect antenna to achieve this. It uses a very strong rare earth magnetic to safely secure the antenna outside your automobile.

  • 144/440 MHz Dual-Band Antenna
  • Super Strong Rare Earth Magnet
  • Antenna Connector: SMA-Female
  • Coaxial Cable Connector: SMA-Male
  • Coaxial Cable: RG-174/U (~8-Feet)
  • Overall Height: ~ 8.25 Inches

We have several adapters that can be used with this product to convert the cable connector to a different type.

* A double female SMA adapter is used with radios having a SMA-Male connector. Such as many Baofeng, Pofung, and Wouxun radios.

  1. Perfect Fit 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Jul 2017

    The antenna is a perfect fit for a temporary antenna on my vehicle. I use it primarily for 2 meters even though it's a dual band antenna. The feed line could be a bit longer... | SELLER'S NOTE: Thanks for the feedback. The max. length of the coaxial cable ( ~ 8 ft.) is designed to reduce loss.

  2. I'm happy with the antenna. 5 Star Review

    I'm happy with the antenna.

  3. Great Product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Dec 2016

    The antenna works well for being compact in size. I use it with a UHF DMR MD-380 HT in my wife's NO RADIO, NO ANTENNA car.

  4. Great Antenna for a handheld 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Dec 2016

    This antenna works great for a handheld in a car. The magnet holds firmly and the small coax slips easily into the car without any fuss.

  5. Great antenna for the price! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Jun 2016

    This antenna helps my handheld (HT) get better range in the car. I can work repeaters 15-20 miles away that the 18" whip antenna couldn't reach in the car.

  6. Works Great, Good for the money 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Jun 2016

    I bought this as an external antenna for my MD80 DMR handheld when I am in the car. Other than wishing the cable were a foot or so longer, it works really well.

  7. Awesome antenna 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Nov 2015

    This little guy provides excellent performance in a small package. Signal quality is awesome on my Icom IC-92, and the price is hard to beat. My only wish is that it had a few more feet of cable. Eight feet isn't quite enough for my current installation in the truck.

  8. Happy 5 Star Review

    Just a note to let you know how happy I am with my recent order. It works perfectly and I received it in a timely manner. I am please with your service.

  9. great antenna for the WOUXUN KG-UV3D! Low Profile, High Performance 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Oct 2014

    I recently Purchased the OPEK AM-601 with the Antenna adapter to work with the Wouxun KG-UV3D. I have a mobile setup with a high gain antenna on my Jeep, my usual vehicle. I got this antenna in case I use my wife's late model,and my GMC Sonoma Pick up . Both cars are "radio-less" My Wouxun does a very good job with the after market antenna, But the signal rapidly dies off on the way to work. So with the handheld, I am able to hit our repeater in Chatsworth ,GA out to about 20 miles. I now use the Opek antenna and using 5 wats wuth the Wouxun, Increased the coverage to about 35 miles! I would imagine if it was not for the mountains, It would probably do even better. this was one purchase I did not mind making! If you travel , and use rental cars, You could put this antenna in a carry on bag, along with your HT and Microphone and have a ball!
