Default Workman UVS-300 On GMRS

Hi, has anyone here ever used a Workman UVS-300 dual band antenna on GMRS? It's spec'ed 440-450 MHz but I'm curious if it'll radiated a decent signal at 467 MHz? A buddy of mine has the Comet GP9 version of the antenna, and he seems to do pretty well on GMRS. He claims an SWR of 1.7:1 at 467.

I use a Diamond X50A which is a dual band ham antenna but is surprisingly resonant on 462/467mhz. About 1;3to1 reflected power is only 1-2 watts.

I just received one of these opek uvs-300 dual banders. When I get it setup on the test pole I will run it through on GMRS and see how it does. I also have a comet GP-6 and it has no problems with swr on GMRS, right around 1.5 on 462 and 467MHz.
