42.5-Inch Length ABBREE SMA-Female Dual Band 144/430Mhz Foldable CS Tactical Antenna for Baofeng UV-5R UV-82 BF-F8HP Ham Two Way Radio
Very good range for VHF even from valley bottom. Can hit repeaters up to 35 km away even over mountains. ZZZZZZZ Kachunk! Worth carrying the 140 g for emergencies.
The usual 16 inch whip also does reasonably well on line of site even in the car. Hit repeater on Moose from high points on Highway 1 like Scott Lake Hill(~25 km) and hill East of Petrocan (32 km)
