This would be more appropriate: NAF5084A NAF5084 - Motorola 7/800 MHZ STUBBY ANTENNA - ShopWiscomm

Don't waste money on the APX antenna with GPS you'll never use.

Interesting, it works two bars here with the RS800 at full signal bars. I'll stick with the RS800, but thanks for the idea. Looks good by the way.

I'm using this one over the 7" XTS 800 antenna. I've analyzed both antennas and the 7" is centered around 850 Mhz and the stubby at 700 Mhz. Both are quite good antennas though.

Anyone having problems going from the NAR6595 and then going back to the stock antenna and having severe signal loss? Confirmed the same with my RS-800. After trimming the Motorola NAR6595 I'm getting great reception. As soon as I switch back to stock or RS800, lose the signal on the systems I monitor. Also confirmed the signal side by side with my PSR-800. Thoughts ?

Also noticing degradation on stock ant after using NAR6595. I hadn't noticed it prior to your post, as I am out of town and not listening to usual systems. I also have a non Moto 3" stubby that I don't use, as it pulls in signals exactly the sams as the G5 stock ant. Now noticing a significant improvement (2-3 bars) with use of the non Moto stubby over the stock ant. Also seeing only a one bar improvement when using stock ant vs no ant.

Only thought is maybe the 6595 may have pushed the ant pin on the G5 down a bit and now it's not seating correctly in the stock ant?

I pulled the pin and checked it. Looks good. May have to order one just to make sure I didn't chip it. But the NAR works great so I'm good for now.

Sounds like the same thing that happened to mine. I switched to the Motorola antenna, then back to the stock antenna, and kept getting out of range errors on systems I had no problem receiving before. I'm now using this sma to bnc adapter with a stubby bnc antenna, and it's working again.

Adapters change the antenna tuning.

Yeah but does an antenna change the antenna tuning? My stock antenna no longer pulls in signals while a OEM Motorola antenna now does. All I did was switch from one antenna to another.

Same here. I only started using the adapter, since the stock antenna no longer worked.

You guys are making this way too hard...When you change antennas on a G4 or G5,,, you need to either power down the radio, then power it back up OR switch to another knob position and then back so the radio will RE-SCAN that system with the NEW antenna. My 2 G5's both show hearing 2 sites with the stock antenna, when I switch to my motorola and make the the radio do the re-scan it come up with 4.

Yeah, that doesn't work. I've switched systems, talkgroups, hard reset, etc. Still working great with the Motorola antenna. Nada win the stock or RS-800 with an SMA to BNC antenna. Checked the pin, everything is seated properly. Going to Unication through my dealer.

I have seen knock off antennas and 'adapters', with bad sized connectors cause problems with the radio connector, AKA damage. Not always easy to see the damage.

I've been using a RS800 with an SMA to BNC adpater since last weekend. Great reception.

Today, I received and and tried a NAR6595 - the RS800 seems to work better for my current setting and monitoring.
