I use one at my house with my KG-935G and various other HTs.  Its a fine little antenna and it has many farz.. Just remember that it needs a ground-plane so slap it on a cookie-pan or something.

Whatever antenna you use, if you're using more than just a couple of feet of antenna-cable, be sure to get GOOD quality/LOW loss cable..

I have this antenna on my mobile base, and i was disappointed at first until i realized it needed a ground plane lol. i moved it to the middle of table and it works MUCH better. Good product.

"Some people" will answer with calculations and laws of physics and big words in an attempt impress us - ignore them.

Any cookie sheet big enough to have at least a few inches all around the base is fine.

I just received this antenna from Amazon 2 days ago to pair with my UV-9G and GMRS-V2. It worked very well attached to a pizza pan in my front window, but it REALLY shines stuck to the roof of my SUV. I have three repeaters in my area that I've been *barely* able to connect to, but not communicate through due to static. I can now transmit and receive clearly on all three repeaters with no problem.
