2m 5/8 smiley 14620
i bought this antenna for my Kenwood 2m HT back when I first got my Ham license. It's worked flawlessly ever since. It's very flexible and very rugged. I've never had any problem hitting repeaters locally and have hit repeaters 10 miles away on flat ground with no hills or mountains in the way.. It's a durable antenna and well worth the money. I've hit reapers standing next to people using HT's with the same power that could t hit the same repeater with their stock antennas... They ended up buying one for theirs... Proof is always in the pudding!!

Best rubber duck I've ever used
This duck is about twice as long as the stock one on my Icom IC-V80. When the HT is on my belt at 4:00, the antenna gently taps me in the back, but it is not uncomfortable.

This duck is mid-way, performance-wise between the stock duck and my 1/2 wave telescopic MFJ one.

The stock duck is only *slightly* more comfortable to carry, while on the belt. But the telescopic one is just downright uncomfortable to carry on the belt, as the antenna pokes me firmly in the back.

The price is reasonable, the build quality is good, and it is made in the USA. This is the perfect compromise antenna for a 2m HT.
