I have a rat shack discone up on the roof that does a decent job. Have a wide 25-1300mhz roof mount on the truck.

I second yaesumofo's suggestion if you don't mind using the BNC-SMA adapter.

I wanted to avoid the need for the adapter, so I went with the Centurion EXE-806-SM. It's an 806-870MHz half wave dipole 2.5dB gain antenna that is 8.5" length. I got mine from Waltel for $27 before they closed.

In my area, the performance of the RS and the Centurion are pretty much even.
