I’m looking for you - it appears that the Yaesu HT antennas have an SMA Male connector - to check this look at the bottom on the stock antenna - if it has a pin coming out that’s male and the new antenna needs an SMA male (aka normal SMA) connector on it. If theres a hole in the bottom of the stock antenna, then that is a female (or reverse SMA - Nick I know reverse means the inside/outside thread but this is how the chinese refer to this sometimes) connector. I think all the example links I have given were fior BNC connectors, so you need to search as you say for an RH770 antenna with a male SMA connector I believe.

Thanx Ed
Yeah it has a pin coming out of the hole in the middle

The ht antenna jack is here

Yep, then you need antennas with a male SMA connector.

Might I suggest this one - just taken from the list on eBay - for the UK suppliers you’ll probably need to telephone them to find what stock they have and whether they have an SMA one.

Cheers Ed
I will message them right now, as they are in Hong Kong

It says sma on the ad

It’s just the UK suppliers you would need to phone to see whether they have the antenna with the correct connection. I doubt you’ll find a phone number for the chinese suppliers. The ad I linked to on eBay-UK is for the correct antenna for your HT (i.e. with the correct connector as shown in the picture).

Hi Ed, I use the 771 on both my Yaesu and Kenwood HTs. It is dual band. It offers a useful improvement on the stock antennae without being quite so unwieldy as the 770 super gainer (in a portable environment).
