I'm thinking about getting one of the 5/8 wave Smiley Duck antennas for my MT2000. For those folks who own Smiley 5/8 ducks, what center frequency did you choose? Also, does it really have a 5+/- bandwidth they advertise?

Thanks,

Warren

I bought one after doing a forum search on here and seeing all the positive reviews. Smiley makes an excellent antenna. Having an antenna custom tuned for the rail band makes a huge improvement.

I have one on my Yaesu VX170, and it's fantastic. When I bought mine, 160 was the closest option, but now I see they have 161 and 162 available. 161 should be perfect.

I wholeheartedly recommend it. It's also tough as nails, I give mine quite a beating and it's held up perfectly.
