Extended Antenna

I sat in one place at my kitchen table and tested my Faux Nagoya (TID Radio 771 antenna).  I’m about 16 miles from a 70cm DMR repeater.  70 cm is close in frequency to GMRS. The nice thing with DMR is that I’m able to see on a computer screen an automated signal strength report as measured by the repeater.

With the rubber duck that came on my DMR Radio I was getting reports that my transmissions were received by the repeater as S6 or S7.  With the Faux Nagoya I saw consistent S8 reported. So at least in my case there was a measurable difference.

One S unit is equivalent to 6 dB.
