Thread: Poor reception with bigger antenna

  1. #1

    Default Poor reception with bigger antenna

    I bought the 15" Nagoya NA-771 antenna for my Baofeng UV-5R. When I use it I can't get the weather channels. When I use the stock antenna that came with the radio I get the weather channels near me just fine.

    Why is a longer antenna giving me worse performance than the OEM one?

    Its probably overloading the receiver with adjacent frequencies, maybe a bandpass filter would help.

    Those radios are well known for this problem...
