Open-bay folded dipole for the base.

You're on your own for the mobile as you'll get MANY responses on which one is better than the other. For me, it's a 1/4 wave NMO mount drilled into the body. No magnet mounts here.

What is an "open bay" folded dipole? (Each dipole is a bay.) What is base station AND mobile? Do you want a mag mount to take off the car and stick on your refrigerator? There's a gazillion antennas available each for a specific purpose so what do you have in mind?

Uh oh, here we go again down the slippery slope with one of those vague "what is best" questions. Such a question immediately raises another question like best for what? Then what do you mean by "best"? The words used by Rescue say it all, "MANY" and "for me" reveal the fact that all you'll get with that shotgun approach is a wealth of opinions all of them meaningless since the only one that matters is yours. Ask for facts and you'll get facts, ask the right questions and you'll get useful answers.
