The MA-721 is a compact, quality construction dual-band antenna combined with a strong magnet. Typically a new ham will start with an HT radio, and move up to a mobile radio soon after. The MA-721 includes the two most common connectors used on HT and mobile radios: SMA-male and PL-259. Please choose the connector that matches the radio you are using.
