|Yaesu Vertex Bnc Helical Antenna For FTA 250L 450L 550 550L 750L.|
Great replacement antenna for my FTA-750L. Actually better than the original since I can see the locking lugs of the bnc connector to ensure a solid mount. Signal strength is a little stronger with this antenna compared to swapping with the original.
THis is a great replacement to the cheap antenna that comes with the FTA-650L. The original antenna would not even stay attached whereas this aftermarket antenna allows you to lock the unit in place.
Original antenna that came with radio looked like the one in the picture, which had no positive grip on the BNC connector. I believe this resulted in the antenna getting twisted too far, resulting in failure, since it was difficult to tell when the BNC lock was reached. New antenna has the BNC connector uncovered (unlike the one in the picture) so you can see and feel when its fully connected.
Whelp it fit. Not really. There is a gap between the bottom of the antenna and the top of the unit. Makes it look like itâ€™s not on. Kinda ghetto.
Yes, this antenna works with the 750L. Also works with the 550AA and the 550L.
Yes, this is the original type antenna for the FTA-550.
