I'm rather fond of my Comet SMA503. I've had good signal reports from it,
but I had to reinforce where the thin wire goes into the connector because
it was starting to get kinked.

I'm still with the stock battery, plus a BP-11 backup (4 AA cells).

Speaking of which, can anyone recommend a good aftermarket antenna for the
D7 that performs reasonably well without being a poking hazard?  And is
there any battery pack available that'll let the radio fit a normal human
