Increase HT Range & Performance Free Mod ( Baofeng UV)

Thanks to "connly33" for this simple, inexpensive way to boost the range and performance of a VHF/UHF HT.

The secret of  better performance is the use of a "Tiger Tail" or counterpoise wire attached to the base of the antenna input.  For the lower part of 2 meters, use a 20 inch/50.80 cm length of wire.  For the upper portion of 2 meters, use a 19 inch/48.26 cm piece of wire.

You may be able to build a small counterpoise wire with the materials in your "junk box."
