One of the frequent questions I get is how to upgrade the stock antenna on a handheld radio. Whether that's for a higher standard of performance (most often) or in terms of durability when interfacing in a tactical loadout, the stock antenna often leaves much to be desired.

There's many options for upgrades out there and I've seen and used nearly all of them, ranging from expensive Ham-oriented options (that often come up short in terms of durability) or tape-whip tactical antennas that mimic what we used on our Harris Falcon IIIs and MBITRs. We used to break those a lot too...and they wouldn't be my first choice.

The best option that I've found is the Gooseneck antenna - an BNC connector base, a flexible mid section and a rigid antenna section on the top third. It flexes with you when weaved in and out of webbing straps on a chest rig or plate carrier and is structurally very strong when paired with an SMA to BNC adapter.

Its a high performance antenna that will upgrade the transmitting range of any dual band VHF/UHF handheld radio regardless of brand and the one I personally use.

    This gooseneck antenna is even more robust than I thought it would be. Paired with the connectors they sell here and utilized with the AR152 (also sold here), the performance is top notch. I recommend the addition of some rubber O-rings (you can do this on your own) between the connector and the antenna socket for improved retention of the antenna for a tight lock up. This antenna is awesome!

    Brushbeater was prompt and fulfilled this order as expected. Abbree goosneck antenna is a fail.

    The bnc connection is not strong - too much play so to get a signal you have to twist, push and pull until it works. Using a sme female to bnc connector so I tried a couple different ones with no change. It would work great for a non-working prop though.

    I'm not sure what BNC connector you're using but its not the ones I stock. I cannot guarantee function with potentially (likely) out of spec connectors.
