Antennex makes some good low pro antennas. Some are whipless, i.e., just a small "stub". I think they're NMO mount also.

Google Antennex & Maxrad.. both good brands...

My Dad used to have a Maxrad on his work truck for the electric company... It was sweet... I was always wanting to take it for myself.. LOL

If it's strictly for 800, consider a cell phone antenna. You can get a mag mount like this, http://tinyurl.com/yfssm2, pretty cheaply. You'll need to get an adapter for the connector, unless you know someone who can put the proper connector on for you.
