Last weekend I finally field tested the slimjim in combination to my Baofeng. I am quite surprised about the vhf improvement. And quite disappointed in uhf performance. On uhf the nagoya outperforms the slimjim from n9tax

Interesting... You might want to try a collinear made with coax. I bet that would work much better...
