Both the Berg 4 and 7 use the same basic technology. Both have pre-base loaded antennas. You can cut the antenna off any length you like and it will still work. The length of the antenna is directly proportional to range; cut it in half, the range is cut in half; quarter length equals quarter range, etc. Figure about a mile range for a full length antenna as a starting point.

Adding another base loaded antenna might or might not increase the range of a shorter antenna length, but in any case it will not hurt.
