What is the dB gain (in dBd) for the OEM antenna that comes with the BC92XLT? I am considering an upgrade but I want to know how much of an improvement I am making to determine if it's worth the cost.

Hand held antenna??? Likely something on the order of -6 to -12dbd. As in almost anything you buy will be an improvement, as long as it is made for the bands you are listening to.

I've always read -3 dBd for a typical duck. Of course, different bands will be different gains, and especially Low Band will be inefficient. That could easily reach -10 dBd for the stock duck, and they are usually made for 150-950 MHz.
