Not sure what to make of that but does anyone have an opinion of the RH771 in looking for Airband and emergency services around Sydney, Australia?...
You should give this Radio Reference thread titled "Diamond RH771 vs RH77CA" a read:

Diamond RH77CA Specs:

Diamond RH771 Specs (5th antenna down in list): RH SERIES/DIAMOND ANTENNA CORPORATION

The length of the RH771 is slightly longer compared to the RH77CA. Per the specs above, the RH771 is 40 cm (15.748 inches) while the RH77CA is 15 inches.

FYI here's an excellent price ($17.95 USD) for the Diamond RH77CA from an authorized Diamond Antenna dealer:
RCA 16S400, Regency HX1500, PRO-2006, PRO-197, TRX-2, BC950XLT, BCD996XT, BCD396XT, SDS100, Motorola Minitor II, Antenna Specialists MON731
