Smiley Antennas offers a wide range of antennas for emergency services, border patrol, as well as beacon antennas for boats, planes, etc., including dual and tri band, flexible and telescopic, and commercial connectors. The Antennas are flexible, durable, medium to high-gain, USA-made duck, telescoping, mini, whip antennas for GMRS, HAM, MURS, Marine (MMS), Aviation (AIR), LMR and much more. .
Our performance comes from the tuning “WITH NO GROUND PLAIN & NO RADIALS”. The Antennas are Designed & Tuned specifically for Handheld Radios. The gain of the antenna is not judged against repeaters. We do field test. Our equipment allows us to see the gain against antenna's that come with the factory radio. All our tests are against the antenna that comes stock with the radio. When we designed our 2-meter 1/2 wave flexible antenna for example, we gave the antenna to a ham operator, and he drove off over 20 miles and our antenna worked wonderful and it is matched 1:1 SWR. Our dual band, that is a telescopic, works better than a rubber duck dual band because you are going from one frequency to another and only a telescopic can work those areas. So not all antennas can be a rubber duck antenna. See our DB gain guide to see how each specific antenna will perform.
The Smiley Antenna Company has developed an outstanding flexible antenna that will simply screw into several antenna bases to fit Motorola, Tempo, Baofeng, Icom, Kenwood, Uniden Scanners, Wouxun, Yaesu , Randy II, Radioddity, Tidradio, Standard, Wilson, RCA, Repco, GE and all other handheld ham radio transceivers using BNC, TNC, MX, SMA, or PL-259 connectors. See the chart below for easy reference to your radio need.
