You could invest in a cheap meter (fleabay), or just set any adjustments to their lowest. These aerials are usually made to cover 430-450Mhz for the Americans, 446 being at the top end, shorter wavelength etc. it shouldn't be far off.
The perfect face for radio.

It won't be any further "out" than the as supplied less than marvelous dual wideband rubber duck, that is generaly tuned anyway for the radios VHF/UHF capabilities.
I doubt the radio will see it as any worse a "load" than the supplied stock one.

If your device is from Baofeng I would use it only to receive Calls.
