  1. Use a small Phillips screwdriver to remove the two mounting-plate screws and the mounting plate from the collar.
  2. Remove the collar strap.

  4. Remove the VHF antenna-connector screw.


To attach your new VHF antenna to the collar:

  2. Place the rubber cover over the VHF antenna-connector screw.
  3. Replace the collar strap.

Review for Supra-Tuff DC-40 Replacement VHF Antenna
December 17, 2015
The antenna (orange part) slides out of the housing (black part). It's just shoved in there. Not crimped, screwed, glued, or secured at all. I crimped it down myself and threw a loop of tape around it, but feel like I need to check it all the time. On the upside, it does seem to get better reception than what I was getting.

At least we don't have to worry so much about puppies chewing up the original ones anymore. These are much stronger and hold up to chewers.

Running hounds in Maine on bear and coyotes can be hard on the equipment. After breakin about half of the stock antennas, l switched to these Supra-Tuffs. Haven't lost any sense. Also they get better reception. Good product.

I replaced 4 Garmin antennas with this one. I waited to replace the 5th so I could see what the difference would be. These antennas transmitted twice as far as the original Garmin antennas.

The antenna seems to work well. I put them on 3 of my collars. They seem to be the last 3 to lose communication with my 320.

So far, so good. Need to get some wear on them to see how they hold up. My thoughts are they will do just fine.

Works as advertised, and easy to replace. Would recommend a second zip tie as the length allows it to hang out in the brush with just the standard one. Also would not get for a beagle or small dog. Put the collar on my friends beagle, and it was too long.

I still like DC 30. Better communication than DC40. Now trying the DC50. A little bulky.

My Garmin DC40 collar wouldn't connect to the receiver. I bought a new antenna from Garmin, and it still wouldn't connect. A friend told me about the orange supra-tuff antenna, and how good it worked for him, so I tried it. The collar immediately connected to the Receiver, which is a Astro 320, and does not lose the signal. I am very pleased. Dave Tipton-TopNotch Kennels.

I like that it's not a do or die type investment, but it is more durable and has given me a little more range.

Good, cheap replacement that seemed to correct lost communication problems after original Garmin antenna developed cracks. I wish it was a bit shorter, but not that big of a deal.

We have changed all 12 collars to this Orange Supra-Tuff Replacement Antenna. After we spent hundreds on antennas from Garmin. Save time and money; purchase these from Steve. They are much better and priced lower. Steve, please advise me when you make your own tracker. I am sure it will be better than the Garmin. I believe Garmin wants things to have a short lifespan, so they can make more money. Not a bad idea for them, but not good for us.

I hunt thick swampy terrain. The Supra-Tuff long range antennas are not helping any at all.

Don't let your puppies chew on the ant. However, it still works, just rough looking.

I use these antennas on DC-40 collars with the Astro 320, and the magnetic roof antenna. (There is a longer range one available now.) I have used the antennas since December 2013, about six months. The antennas give a greater range to the tracking system. My conditions are suburban, and the system roughly doubled its range from one-half mile to about 1.15 miles. Under favorable conditions, the range has reached three miles. After several months, the antenna tips had come off. Not sure if this would reduce the range. I replaced the antennas. Within a week, two of the tips had come off. Overall, this is a worthwhile upgrade for the price. For even better range, I might consider purchasing the long range antenna for the DC-50 collar and trying to use it on the DC-40 collar. However, I have seen the tip on that antenna become separated, too.

Extremely fast shipping!! Got the antenna in 2 days. Had problem with signal with my Astro 220 and DC30, but after simply switching out old standard antenna for this one, no issues. Now when he takes a coon 1/2 mile, I can watch him on the Garmin until he is treed. Highly recommend Gun Dog Supply.

It works in Arizona in Mearns' and Gambel's country. Longer than the original, but that was not a problem.

Item is good. A bit long for working thickets hunting grouse, but seems able to handle it better than the stock antenna.
