Question

I have a couple ofBaofeng BF-F8HP handsets and I was looking for a better antenna to use for a vehicle as well as one to mount somewhere around the house. Any suggestions?  I plan to be using GMRS and MURS, but I may become a ham sometime in the future too. I'm a radio tech in the Marine Corps (2841) currently a reservist, but the civilian side of things is still pretty new to me. Thanks in advance.

Authentic Genuine Nagoya UT-72 Super Loading Coil 19-Inch Magnetic Mount VHF/UHF (144/430Mhz) Antenna PL-259 from amazon is what I use on top of my Suburban. Nice Increase in performance compared to the factory setup. At home I use  Dual Band Portable roll up VHF UHF Antenna (MURS, HAM, GMRS, commercial) DBJ-2 from ED Fong off eBay, its not fancy but no complaints from me. Still testing to see if i get better range with it then the Nagoya. Semper Fi and Happy birthday.

I also use the 19" Nagoya UT-72 on my vehicle and it works great! It actually gives me more power out than my other three mobile antennas.
