I used the Stubby from Craven Speed. It works pretty good where I am, but it can vary widely depending on your location.

Again, it is a matter of science and radio people understand that a 5/8 wave antenna provides the best reception.

The Stubby isn't an antenna. It's a piece of anodized aluminum with threads that replaces an antenna.

I use the CravenSpeed Stubby 3.2" and have had no problems with signal.

My advice for you moving forward, utilize the 'Search' feature!!!

There are already a crapload of stubby-related posts. Not being an ass, just trying to help you avoid wasting your time in the future. For the amount of time it took you to type up your thread and then wait for a response, you could have found 10 threads with similar info and purchased the perfect stubby and simply just sat back and waited for it to be delivered.

I wholeheartedly disagree. The point of a forum is to discuss topics/issues/etc. that way, people/users coming in AFTER you donít have to bring up the same topics or issues. They can search on these pre-existing conversations and have the information they seek.

Trust me, people donít like answering the same questions over and over again. Iím not an asshole, by any means, but this is a pet peeve of mine. Thereís no need to ask the same things over and over.

If, however, you have a legit question and search for that topic and see no results, by all means, ask away.

Cheers and enjoy your Raptor!
