Actually delivers! By Guest
I own a Diamond SRH701 and the WXGAT-ST. The WXGAT-ST outperforms the SRH701 on my Yaesu FT3DR. I get more signal across all frequencies with the WXGAT-ST.

Probably the best antenna on the market, I measured an average of 1.25-1.75:1 at 440 & 462 and 1.75-2.0:1 at 140 & 155 on 4 of these out of the 5 I've bought so far!
I had one that was high, 3.5-4.5:1 I trimmed about 1.25" off and recapped it with gorilla glue and a screw cover from home depot, now it's averaging 1.1-1.25:1 at 440 & 462, and 1.5-1.75:1 at 140 & 155
Using these on the following radios; TYT MD2017, TYT MD680, TYT TH-UV8200, Radioddity GD-55+ and a simplex repeater via Retevis RT1. I get anything from 2.5-7mi out of these in Western PA, which has both lots of hills/trees and urban obstructions. Without these antennas, at best I was getting 1-3mi so I've gained more that double in most regards my ability to reach out.

This antenna is on my Wouxon KG-UV6X By Ed Goldberg
I am a licensed Ham and a member of the Civil Air Patrol. With this antenna I am able to reach Peavine repeater in North Reno NV.from Minden NV. Airport about 50 miles. I also get full quieting on the Sierra, DCART, and Tara Repeaters ranging 25 to 30 miles. Using the CAP repeater in Narrow Band below ham freq. It performs very well. Recommend this antenna for Wouxon, Baofeng radios.

Great RX & TX improvement! By DB 62
This is an excellent antenna, and I immediately noticed better clarity in my reception. My friend said he can now hear me from across town so the transmission is stronger as well. This is an excellent improvement for your UV6X radio!
I have one for both of my radios!
The UV3D & the UV6X.
