Counterpoise
A simple but significant, and inexpensive improvement that can be made to the Smiley HT antenna bases we sell is the addition of counterpoise from a device commonly referred to as a "Rat Tail". The effectiveness of a counterpoise element is not a myth, it is pretty simple science and therefore not about to make anyone millions. Technically, counterpoise is is not a true ground plane, it would more accurately be referred to as a 'virtual ground plane'. You may have seen radial elements at the bottom of a base station antenna on a roof somewhere, and these are there to give counterpoise. So in the case of a rubber duck, counterpoise gives a virtual ground plane reference to trampoline the signal using the same dynamics analogous to what radials do for base station antennas. There are lots of videos about making a DIY 'Rat Tail' on Youtube, but unfortunately many of them are well intentioned but poorly informed. First, you should not use an adapter between your antenna and radio, as that throws off the center tuned point of your antenna and changes the impedance and the velocity factor. Second, a thin wire is not 'OK'. The wire requires maximum capacitance and minimum resistance, so the thicker, the better. We use both 10 AWG or 12 AWG silicone sheathed copper stranded wire that does not get brittle in the cold. Because soldering directly to the antenna base can compromise the insulators inside the base through excessive heat and short the radiating element to ground, we spot weld a tabbed nickel collar to the base and then attach the element to that. Not required for normal use, this is commonly used by guides for increasing their chances of communicating with emergency services during remote multi day trips. Will work with previously bought IPX antennas after the end users performs a simple modification requiring an exacto knife. Also fit onto all other Smiley antennas with this base system including the metal telescoping antennas. Available in SMA-F, or SMA-M, add required base type in notes. Weight is 30G. SMA-M are red, and SMA-F are black. Note: In order to attach a counterpoise wire to a new IPX6 antenna, you must do a MOD that requires an exacto knife. Before ordering, you are strongly advised to download and watch this 4 minute video that shows the process, so that you can ascertain that this DIY procedure does not extend beyond the limits of you comfort level, and that you will not hurt yourself with the sharp blade (warning: some focus problems exist): https://youtu.be/mGUlyS_WdlU

IPX6 Custom label/color
All our IPX6 are color coded to match their tuned frequency. This is important when you carry three antennas in the field. However, if you just use one antenna, some clients prefer to have their name on the label, and a custom color for the antenna (EG: black instead of blue, red, etc.). This antenna also has a longer skirt on the bottom (for SMA-M) that the client must trim to match their individual radio. Name is printed in ISO format of LNAME, FNAME (first initial only). Instead of name, label can be printed with company name. Bulk: For Qty of 6 or more for commercial branding, price is reduced by 25%. State name you want on label in notes. Specify base type in notes.

Smiley Base Connectors
Why might I need one? A new Smiley antenna comes with a base connector as per the buyer's specification. If you already have a Smiley antenna and change radios that have a different antenna base, or you're buying a new Smiley and want to use it on two different radios that have different base connectors, you may need a base with a different connector type. You do not need to buy a new base to use with a Rat Tail (the Rat Tail is simply a Smiley base connector with the appropriate wire soldered onto it). More details: Smiley has developed a base system that ensures any of their flexible antennas will simply screw into several antenna bases to fit Motorola, Tempo, Standard, Wilson, RCA, Repco, GE and all other transceivers using BNC, TNC, MX, SMA, or PL-259 connectors. This can be very handy if you change radios from a model that used an SMA-F base (EG Baofeng), but want to keep your antennas and use them on your new radio that needs an antenna with an SMA-M base (EG: TYT). These only work on compatible Smiley antennas. For more information see our base connector page: https://goo.gl/7gavYo
