New Release – Nagoya UT-72G

Wednesday, March 9, 2022

BTECH has announced today the release of the Nagoya UT-72G, a dual-band magnet mount antenna with over 3.5 dBi of gain and measures 20 inches. The UT-72G is specifically designed for GMRS use. The Nagoya UT-72G comes equipped with the UT-72G antenna, SMA female adapter, SMA male adapter, and uses a standard UHF (PL-259) connector. The SMA female adapter allows the antenna to be compatible with BTECH radios such as the GMRS-V1. The SMA male adapter can be used for compatibility with other brands of GMRS radio including Baofeng, Radioddity, and Retevis. The UHF connector allows for the Nagoya UT-72G to work with base and mobile GMRS Radios, most notably our GMRS-50X1.

How to use

The Nagoya UT-72G is omni-directional and uses a very tightly wrapped loading coil which increases GMRS reception and range. Most importantly, however, the Nagoya UT-72G is easy to use and install with either your mobile or handheld radio. Because the antenna is weatherproof, the magnetic mounting base included allows you to use the antenna on your vehicle.

Mounting the antenna on a steel body car will serve to improve your signal. The Nagoya UT-72G is 2.5mm thick compared to the typical 1.5mm antennas found on most vehicle magnetic mounts.

If you choose to use the antenna with your handheld radio, the RG316 SMA jumper included makes that an easy option. The jumper has been tested at the perfect length to resist line loss thus ensuring the maximum performance from your radio.

Don’t fall for the imposters on the market. To limit counterfeit listings, BTECH and Nagoya have an exclusive manufacturing partnership, so you know that you will be getting a certified original Nagoya antenna.

Pricing and Availability

The UT-72G starts at $32.95 and is available to purchase from our direct storefront at: 

The UT-72G is also available through Amazon and through BTECH Distributors.

    I have a BTECH GMRS V1 hand held radio. I would like Nagoya CB-72 28″ CB Antenna or similar but the last one I ordered from Amazon had no adapter for my hand held BTECH device. What is the product I can order to a have a Nagoya or similar antenna work with my hand held BTECH?

      The CB-72 is strictly for CB radios, you would want the UT-72G for use with the GMRS-V1
