Nagoya NA-24J Ultra Whip VHF-UHF Antenna

John reviews the new lightweight Nagoya NA-24J Ultra Whip VHF-UHF Antenna. He reports the performance is better than most stock handheld antennas, but the real differentiator is the weight:
"Here's where the NA-24J excels. The antenna element is less than half the thickness of the NA-771 and about 1/3 the weight. The 24J weights in at mere .3oz (8.5g) as compared to 1.0oz (28g) for the NA-771."

  1. It's too bad there isn't an SMA male version (yet?).

    I am working on a HAB project where weight is critical. Currently using a 771. I would love to shave 20ish grams off of that. The less my balloon payload weighs the higher it should go.
