OPEK VUM-201-SMA - VHF/UHF Dual Band Mobile Ham Radio Antenna
Posted by KK4ULE on 25th Oct 2014
For the price this is an excellent antenna. I purchased a Baofeng UV82 as my first ham radio last October and use this antenna when mobile. As I was still new to ham I didn't want to write a review since I really had, and still have, a lot to learn. Since then I have used several other antennas in the mobile and despite its size the antenna really does work great. When using it with the HT I would even rather have this antenna compared to my others because of the small coax it is not hard to handle the radio and the larger coax is also kinda hard on the little SMA stud. Rare earth mag works great and has never popped off on me. Great to use, or for the price great for a backup or just to play and compare.

As a WINNER of a monthly contest for this antenna, I find it slightly better than the stock antenna on my Baofeng dualband handi-talkie. I have hit and missed into local repeaters 25-30 miles away. Line of sight.
