I did find the single band 2m antenna that came with the UV-3R performed about 3dB better than the NA-701. I have not found any other antenna that size which performs that well, but it does not seem possible to find a dual band antenna that does not sacrifice performance without gooing for something much bigger.
The NA-701 does perform similar to dual band rubber ducks from Yaesu. The single band VHF antenna with the UV-3R is about 3dB *poorer* than the NA-701. But it is half the size.
