XPR HT UHF Antenna Question

Postby Max » Fri Jan 23, 2015 1:09 pm

Has anyone done any testing with a XPR 6300 series handhelds comparing the 3.5 inch UHF Stubby Antenna to the 5.5 Inch UHF Antenna ?

I'm trying to find out if there is much difference in the performance between the two antennas.

Thanks
Max

On MT2000 and Astro Sabers it does make a lot of difference.

We use the EXC450SF antennas.

I did testing with XPR6550 radios. It is a big difference for them as well. The 3.5 inch stubby is for the mic hanging off a lapel and the 5.5 is expected to be on the radio itself. Stick to the 5.5 on the radio. The 3.5 inch doesn't work well on the radio. (Does make it a lot easier to carry though. If all of your comms are in the same building it might work for you though.)

While this thread is for comparing the 2 UHF antennas on the XPR6550, I must say on the XPR7550, the UHF stubby works just as well as the non stubby version. My 7550 with the stubby, & non stubby antenna can receive stations in Miami that the 6550 with a 6" Jedi antenna can not hear. GARY
