Upgrade Your Rubber Duck Antenna

The average rubber duck antenna has -5db db of gain. Essentially, this means that your 5w handheld only radiates 1w when compared to a quarter wave vertical.  Upgrading from a "stock" rubber duck that came with your radio to a specially designed multi-band or single band rubber duck can effectively improve upon this negative gain situation and improve your effective radiated power (ERP).
