I purchased/use the Nagoya NA-771 on mine, as I too use my 5R as more of a scanner radio on my desk for my local emergency groups and even local highway crews. It picks up much better, however....I also use this antenna on my BF-8HP which has the extended battery, and the antenna randomly picks up an interference from the battery causing the radio to make a loud, obnoxious noise which can be stopped each time by pressing the PTT. But I do not have that problem on the 5R with the regular battery.

When the bad weather was coming in I tuned to 162.55 which is the weather service for my area. I got a very noisy signal and got in car and drove around to see if it changed. It did come in better in several places but no way acceptable in an emergency. Is their a better antenna available for these? Any other suggestions would be appreciated.   DON
