    Commo guys, Baofeng setup, antennas and accessories.

    I've tried the Nagoya 15in whip antenna, the arrabee 42in, now the diamond 15in whip and O don't get any reception from any of the after markets. The OEM gets the best reception out of all of them. What specific antenna do I need to get the best reception?

    I was looking for the ATAK tablet or phone app for Android but cannot find it. What's the best app to connect the radio to a laptop, tablet or phone? Also, what cable do I need, I already may have it.

    For accessories, I have the USB transformer cable, tac sky us4 PTT, car charge, bigger battery. I'm just trying to find the right antenna and cables.

    What else do I need to be able to setup the radio, cables to connect to other devices and a proper antenna!?

    No reception would imply a connector issue. Just not that much difference in antenna performance to create an all or nothing reception issue.

    Who/what are you trying to communicate with?

    I'm just trying to get the NOAA weather channel to test. With the OEM antenna the reception is 2:5. Reception with the after market antennas are 0:5.
