Super-Elastic Signal Stick

Add-ons: (+$0.00)

We will include a rubber washer to put between the radio and antenna (helpful with some radios with particularly tall SMA connectors). Note this only fits an SMA connector and most likely is only useful for SMA-M!
SKU: N/A Category:


Please make sure you order the correct connector for your radio!

These are hand-made, ultra lightweight, and nearly indestructible antennas which outperform the stock antenna your handheld radio came with by a significant margin. Originally designed to use as a fundraiser for a youth group, sales from these remarkable antennas are now the primary source of funding for our free ham radio study website, https://hamstudy.org.

These antennas have changed many times over the years; the current versions have black 3D-printed covers over the connectors and clear / GITD tips. Custom colors are available when ordering in groups of 50 or more at a discounted rate, email us for more information.

    I’m using this antenna on a TYT MD-390 radio. This antenna is significantly better than the stock radio, and has much less noise than my ExpertPower XP-771 (compare to Nagoya 771). This antenna connector plus SMA adapter is about half the length of the SMA to BNC adapter sets I got on ebay, making this antenna about the same installed length as the other two much shorter antennas.

    I’m not going to abuse it like other have, so I expect it to last a very long time. Seems like a killer deal for a much better antenna than what the big companies make.

    I have one of these antennas on my Tait Orca handheld (VHF, 136-174MHz). Receive and transmit both are excellent, far better than the OEM duck! Will be equipping several of my other VHF and dual-band radios with these. Can’t beat them for the price, and you support others in the amateur community!

    First off, I used hamstudy.org and it was very helpful in getting my General and Extra. I recently bought two of these signal sticks and tried them out on two different HTs. They really work great. Yes, you can coil it up and it pops right back in shape. The price is very reasonable and the shipping was fast.

    Just received my 3rd antenna and the 2.0 version is really a step up. It has enough backbone to keep it from flopping around like the original version. Both versions have great results RX and TX but the new version really does seem more stable. I will probably end up getting another one or two because they really are that great.

    Purchased a Gen 2 antenna for my Wouxun HT. Out of the bag keyed up repeater 35miles away. Reports clear audio but low getting into machine. Cant wait to see how it does on simplex and UHF. Ive been recommending this antenna to others.

    Wonderful improvement. Probably didn’t need the spacer but it is rubber so acts as a soft lock washer..
