Long Ranger Telescopic End fed Halfwave 2 Meter HT Antenna
The Long Ranger 2 Meter 1/2 wave. For long range this MFJ end fed 1/2 wave is hard to beat. Outperforms a 5/8 wave on an HT because the 5/8 wave needs a ground plane. It's shorter, lighter, has more gain and places less stress on your antenna connector. When collapsed it performs like a rubber duck (0 1/2"). 40 in. extended.
