    Excellent Antenna

    Let me add my I AGREE to that. I bought the same antenna from the rf adapter guy and it is nothing short of amazing. I can hit our 2M and 440 repeaters from inside my car at over 40 miles, with just a little white noise, while the Wouxun sitting in a cup holder in the console.
    Great radio and amazing antenna.

    These radios were a HUGE hit at Huntsville Hamfest this weekend. One vendor brought these radios and a few accessories. They sold over 100 of them in just the first half of the day. I had some of their customers coming over to my tables and buy the above mentioned antennas and adapters. One guy told me he got all the accessories with his radio for around $180. That was a battery pack, drop in charger, and computer software with cable. He also picked up a AA holder for it too. I've never used one of these radios before but they look well built. The price is unbeatable. I'd thought of buying one and testing it out, then give the results to our ARES group. This would make a economical way to start filling go boxes. If I didn't already have my D7AG and IC80AD, I'd condsider buying one for a "spare". As for the antennas, stock isn't always good. I've never sold a upgraded antenna and had a customer say it preformed worse than the stock.

    Isn't it :)

    Ao27 will have a pass here at 2:17. Earlier this morning it was down.... Probably goes out of service when the sat goes out of sunlight to conserve power.

    Didn't know you had a Wouxun....

    I listen to 147.240 mostly.... 2 friends also have Wouxuns... we love our rigs :)
