Baofeng UV-5R Antenna Options




What do you think about this video?

Doggieman1111: It's pronounced "bow-fung." Bow like the bow of a boat.

Aerobob MYOB: Not a word about which one performs the best? There's 7 minutes of my life I'll never get back.

Matti333: Hmmm , after market antennas may improve reception , but till you put that antenna on a SWR you wont know how well or badly it performs on transmit ... You would be amazed at the results ..

TranceAddiction13: Appreciate the video bud. Video looks fine to me.

Hans Kruit Dampie: look up 409shop on google, they have plenty antenna's available with female SMA

GriffTaylor: It's the MFJ-1717SF. And it's definitely an improvement over the stock antenna. But I'm not really sure how it compares to the Comet SMA-24J or the Diamond SRJ77CA. They are all similar in length and all of them will be better than the stock antenna. You might want to look on eham for some reviews.

humbleradio: I use them. I recommend that shop. Very fast shipping. No charge. Low prices and response from them is same day or faster. I had trouble with radiogearpro. Maybe my experience, but they took too long to respond. Both are out of HK (I'm in Tokyo). 409 shop has everything you need and then some.

kingchaosification: So I hooded and got the mfj 1717s not the sf what can I get a adaptor so the antenna will fit?

okEric89: If you could turn off the backlight on the radio, maybe that would make it better.

humbleradio: Nagoya NA 771.

mikegigabyte: wish I would of saw this video first then your other one I ordered my antenna from the picture you took of the model number from the other video not knowing at the time they screwed on an adapter but kept the old sticker on it so I have coming the male antenna now

AHRadioVK5: The strange antenna connection is also used by wouxun,kenwood,and tyt just search "kenwood ht antenna" and see what you get

CPLBSS88: would you say the Wouxun uv6d is worth the $120 diff between the two? I'm wanting it for just general public safety and emergency use. I'm not going around playing with it like some do so basic functions are fine but if there is something big then i'm willing to pay the extra.

GriffTaylor: Sorry all I got is my smartphone. I wish I had a better camera too. :(

GriffTaylor: I would just google search "sma female to sma female adapter" and see what comes up. MFJ might have one. You might check Radio Shack as well.

emeded: Why not just use SMA female to SMA female? Now you have bunch of options available...

TheRingSpanner: Lockout. The UV6D has a lockout function that prevents anyone from changing the settings without a password. The UV-5R doesn't, so in the field you can't trust anyone but yourself with the radio. Also the Wouxun is IP55 rated. You can consider the previous models which are slightly cheaper.

drejj8a: Just get adapter

kingchaosification: Goofed

GriffTaylor: I'm pretty sure I talked about that. And how a solid adapter would put more stress on the radio than one with a short cable. But yes an sma female to sma female would be a great option. I would just make sure that it has some sort of strain protection so the connector doesn't get damaged.

Stuart Gray: I have a UV5RE Plus. It came with the improved 'stock' antenna. I can hit repeaters 30 miles away no problem on a clear night. My friend with a Nagoya antenna on his 5R does the same, and the quality at the other end is similar.

rob b: horrendous audio...tinny as freak..cant bear it !

Paul Selwood: What anteena have you added to it. And is it better

Tery Thompson: Very good information. Thanks!

16osel: Hello can you please send link to a page where you can buy the antenna? Thank you in advance

scdevon: An SMA to BNC adapter opens up a new world of antenna possibilities.

Benji M: Thanks. you really helped me out a lot ,\m/

The Grand Baboon: Would any of these antennas be able to receive and transmit on GMRS frequencies effectively? More effectively than the stock antenna? I was considering the Diamond SRJ77CA myself.

fredalan: Your video is just fine. Don't sweat it. Some lids just need to clean the doughnut smudges off their glasses ;)

CarsElectronicsGPS: What an awesome radio and price....the features are better than the Yaesu FT-60 and 1/3 the price!!! No problems! Found that programming using CHIRP worked out very well and life was good! here is the link to it in case anyone isinterested:amzn.to\16aIqN1

Marc Clarke: Please get a camera that focuses properly. This video is really blurry, which detracts from what otherwise would have been a good video.

Schools: Learn how to get phlebotomy training in California! The job pays decent money for the amount of schools needed to graduate.
