What is the difference between a standard and stubby antenna?

The only one difference is that the stubby or short antenna cuts your range by approximately 30%. The short antenna is very convenient and it is perfect for locations like small hotels, schools, small construction sites and warehouses, libraries, etc. since range is not an issue in these small locations. But if you need to maximize your coverage then we recommend getting the standard length antenna.
