Default Antenna Forum

Antenna's come in many different shapes forms and specifications. I just thought that if your like me with a broken antenna on a beloved radio or a super up to date radio antenna head guru that can figure out the answer to a difficult question I would ask the question here.

I have a Uniden Mystic VHF/UHF maping radio that uses a 50 ohm quadrifilar antenna the receiver VHF Freq is 156~164 MHZ and the trans VHF Freq is 156~158 MHZ. The problem is the antenna that came wight the raido isn't sold anymore. Wouldn't there be another antenna that would work with this radio GPS. I want an antenna that will bring my radio back to life.

it looks like it has a bnc conector give us a snap shot of the radio with the antenna removed. if it is any wide band vhf antenna will work for it. there are some slightly longer gain antennas available now.

Don't know about transmit (swr may not be friendly), but I'm pretty sure a 2m with bnc connector would work just fine for receive. It's just outside of the 2m frequency.


I just remembered that my Wouxon dual bander (2m/440) has 156.800 programmed in it, and I have transmitted on that frequency to my buddy's radio on is boat. I use a Diamond RH77CA antenna equipped with a BNC connector.
