    CLAIM
  1. The ornamental design for a hand-held antenna system, as shown and described.
Description

FIG. 1 is a front isometric view of a hand-held antenna system showing our new design.

FIG. 2 is a rear isometric view thereof.

FIG. 3 is a right side elevational view thereof.

FIG. 4 is a front elevational view thereof.

FIG. 5 is a rear elevational view thereof.

FIG. 6 is a top plan view thereof.

FIG. 7 is a left side elevational view thereof; and,

FIG. 8 is a bottom plan view thereof.

Stippling and contour lines shown in the drawings are intended to represent the approximate three-dimensional contours of the design, and is not intended to indicate surface decoration.

The broken lines shown in the figures represent portions of the hand-antenna system that form no part of the claimed design.
