Excellent performance. We used these as replacement antennas for our new Bendix-King KNG-P150S radios in the Department of the Interior - NPS

I recently purchased the Tytera MD-380 DMR radio, even though this handheld (HT) came with two antennas from factory; I found out that I needed some kind of ht antenna with a higher gain. After doing some research online I came across the OPEK HR-603VU-SMA. I did my homework and I found very good reviews on this antenna, so I decided to give it a shot. Well the performance of this antenna is like a night and day in comparison with the two stock antennas that this radio came with, for the price this antenna is totally worth it. if you are looking for a higher gain antenna for your HT you can not go wrong with this one.
