Is it possible to connect a KG-905G to a Nagoya NL-770G mobile antenna using the provided coax that comes with the magnetic base mount (Nagoya RB-MJPL) rather than use the antenna that comes on the 905G?

Should be no problem to find an appropriate so239 to sma(m or f) adapter. Something like this: https://www.amazon.com/DHT-Electronics-Handheld-Antenna-Quasheng/dp/B00COKNKS8/

WOT-

Your the man, thank you!... also... I think it was you that mentioned an amplifier of some sort in another thread we connected on that would increase the output of a HT from 5w to 40-50w??? Thanks again...

I actually did a little more research and think that when the time comes to upgrade my mobile power I'll just go with the Wouxun KG-1000G rather than purchase an amplifier for my HT...

Good plan ūüĎć if we're being technical, none of the amps I've seen are approved for gmrs.

I've been fighting the temptation to do an amp for the ham side though; been running with a handheld+mag mount antenna for a bit, while the radio intended for the truck is doing base duty.

I didn't actually have luck receiving an adapter like the one linked (I think I tried "superbat" brand), though others have...mine got lost in the mail twice. Been using this cable instead, though most of my handhelds are sma-f, so this would need an additional adapter with the wouxun https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B07CPVF1GG/

have also used this adapter kit https://www.amazon.com/SMA-UHF-Connectors-Nickel-Plated-Converter/dp/B01MQNJVMT/

YES, HOWEVER THE UT-72G Nagoya UT-72G High Gain Magnet Mount GMRS Antenna (462-467 MHz) (buytwowayradios.com) IS A LITTLE SMALLER AND COMES WITH A SMA ADAPTER FOR THE KG-906G.  ALTHOUGH I ALSO HAVE THE KG-1000G WITH THAT NAGOYA 770G AND IT IS A PERFECT COMBINATION!

Yeah I think that's what I'll go with (KG-1000G and the 770G) when I am able to pull that financial trigger on the 1000G... in the meantime I'll just utilize my 905G as a HT and a mobile unit.

THE THE UT-72G WILL DO MUCH BETTER THAN THE STOCK RUBBER DUCK  ALSO THE BATTERY ELIMINATOR Wouxun ELO-005 Battery Eliminator for KG-905G and KG-UV8H (buytwowayradios.com)

TOM47-

Took your advice and ordered the UT-72G yesterday rather than the 770G... much better choice, thx.

IF INSTEAD IH THE BATTERY ELIMINATOR YOU COULD CARRY YOUR CHARGER BASE WITH EXXTRA BATTERY AND Wouxun Vehicle Charging Adapter (CCO-001) (buytwowayradios.com) FOR THE CHARGING BASE!
