Let's be clear, here, shall we:
The point of highest standing RF energy on an antenna -- and *every radio has an antenna* -- is at the tip, away from the feedline.
On a Nextel, that's a couple inches from your head, assuming you extended the antenna.
On other phones, it's either half an inch from your ear, or inside your cupped hand, or both.
I, personally, will happily take that extensible antenna.
