Install a separate airband antenna dedicated to the handheld. The
transmitting  and receiving benefits are worth the extra money. NEVER use
an antenna splitter to connect two transmitters. The rubber attenuator
that comes with the handheld is good for portable operation, but if you
are really serious about using the handheld as a backup radio, your range
is severly limited without the airband aircraft antenna. If you have an
electrical system, you may want to consider installing an amplifier
between the handheld and the antenna. This will further increase the
transmitting range of the handheld.
