    Ham radio Crash Course did some testing on foldable tape antennas and the Abbree brand antennas do quite well. They are Tactiuncool looking, but the performance is there for both the 2m and 70cm bands. I would stick with the Abbree brand if you want a tape antenna for your UV5R.

    If your still using the antenna that came with the HT then you definitely want to upgrade. The stock antenna is basically a dummy load.
