Customer Reviews for the MFJ-1717S.

From: Bart KB9SXC
Great antenna, little tall but it has exceptional RX. Several months ago I was able to make a contact (while on top of a hill in CA) with an operator 90 miles away. The initial contact was on 5W. After awhile I switched to 0.5W and he could still copy me almost clean. In California I was on top of Mission Peak (Fremont), CA and the other person was located in Pine Grove, CA. Next contact that I'm hoping for is the ISS - they been very active lately. Wish me luck.

Great antenna, use mine on a Yaseu FT270R and WOW!! What a difference. I can call repeaters more than 30 miles away on 1/2 watt. I highly recommend this antenna for any HT.

From: Robert K Tompsett N8JUQ
Fantastic antenna. I tossed the standard ducky antenna that came with the Yaesu FT1D. Why? Cause I'll never have to lower my quality of usage.

I'm a US Forest Service radio tech, but my dad was WA8SAK for as long as I can remember until he passed in 2001.

The 1717S is a far better antenna than the little ducks that come standard with our Midland STP-105B portables. Midland offers the 1717S as an optional antenna, too. Any of my users with the little 4" molded antennas have trouble hitting repeaters outside of a couple miles, which of course generates trouble tickets of "XX repeater not working" or "my handheld doesn't transmit". Switch them out with a 1717S, and viola! Magic!! I haven't really checked the antenna performance at our operating frequencies (VHF high band 160-174, but there don't seem to be any issues at all.
