Summary:

The Nagoya UT-72G is a dual-band magnet mount antenna with over 3.5 dBi of gain. It is designed to be used with your mobile or handheld radio. An included super flexible SMA adapter cable allows for easier installation to your handheld radio (both male and female SMA genders included). It will help improve your signal by mounting the antenna on any vehicle with a steel body (like cars).

The UT-72G antenna, when mounted vertically is omni-directional which allows it to receive signal from all directions. It uses a very heavy duty rare earth magnet on it's 3.25 inch magnetic mount and is the perfect antenna for cars, pickup trucks, vans and SUVs.

With 13' of Heavy Duty RG-58 you are able to set up your Antenna on almost any vehicle application. The antenna itself is 2.5mm thick compared to the usual 1.5mm antennas found on most vehicle magnetic mounts.

Included in the package is a RG316 SMA Jumper that allows easier installation on your handheld radio as well as a SMA male to male adaptor. The jumper has been tested at the perfect length to resist line loss - insuring the maximum performance from your radio.
