I wanted an external truck antenna for better distance and reception.  Plus I like the look of it.  I got great antenna at Hamfest On Saturday June 2 not a bad magnetic external for $20.00.  I find my reception and range are way better then the rubber ducky I was using that came with my handheld.  Then I bought an adapter “SMA” to “PL-259” Adapter Cable from a guy at the ham fest selling adapters.  I like to keep my business local if I can.  But amazon does sell them if need be


And that was about it my next post I will show you my new radio that I have been using it’s a great starter radio that I have been using to learn before I start building my rig in my ham shack.
