Ther Procaster which I purchased last summer came with an antenna from the manufacturer, made of three sections (maybe it was two) of aluminum tubing.
I also noted earlier (I think) that the Procaster included in the photographs of the test is NOT a current model. It’s an older model and I know there had been some changes to the unit since that one was built (According to Chezradio anyway)
And again, the ability to modulate has a huge factor on range. There should have been some sort of standard audio test included. I know that’s more work and another variable, but it’s a huge factor in how far you can be heard.
