A new series of Antenna has recently entered the radio market known as the Hypario JAPAN HPA series.
Hypario HPA-771 is the best selling High Gain Dual Band Antenna in their HPA series ,
HPA-771 is Made in Taiwan . It works better than the stock antenna , especailly Baofeng radios.
We have tested them and found that they increased Rx and Tx performance noticeably on the Uv5r , GT-3 , uv-82, my bf8+, and 888s handhelds. they are longer than the stock antennas. Almost 16″ actually. . It comes with a small rubber spacer should your radio require one for a snug fit.
To Compare with Nagoya Na-771 , this antenna has 2 times(or more!) RX / TX ! and the Sales price is around
US$12.99 – 15.99 .

A quick summary review, an excellent performer.
I definitely give it a 5 star rating.
“This antenna is awesome…. If you have an uv5r this is a must have.. stock antenna is junk and this works 10 fold…”
“Very nice antenna. Hits Repeater 40 miles out on 5 watts”
Extends range on radio ten fold! must have for your baofang!”
“Antenna is an absolute BEAST. I am a railfan, and I can hear things on the railroad thirty miles away with this antenna on my radio. Very good bang-for-the-buck. I am quite pleased and if this antenna goes down I will buy the exact same to replace it with.”
“This antenna is a must have for hitting those far off stations”
