One thing, don't expect *too* much from a rubber-duck...  While antenna is 99% of a radio system, no matter what you will be limited using a portable with a rubber-duck compared to a mobile or base.

 

I use the Diamond SRH77CA on my VX-7R, seems to work pretty well for 2M/70CM.

I have a few 888's I use an SMA to BNC adaptor and buy BNC antennas, then when I get in my truck or Home, I can easily hook up to roof top antenna. I also like the short stubby spring BNC antenna for around the house. I would upload pictures but says file too big.

If you search "golden spring" and "BNC female to SMA female" on ebay and maybe Amazon.

for a gain antenna I like the SRH 901s Dual band antenna also BNC based.

a BNC connection is by no means perfect, but it is convenient.
