They are expensive new but the performance is way better than you can imagine for a small-ish ground plane. Its only a dB or two down from a resonant 1/4 wave ground plane but it does that consistently across the 30 to 88Mhz range. The antenna it replaces in the field was 16ft tall and had 19 separate parts, and the COM201B works better.

If you want a terrific omni directional VHF lo band monitor antenna you will probably not find anything better.
