Sorry. Forgot to mention that. Its on the $34.95 on in the scannermaster store. They don't show the model number there, but the product code is 07-540719. I bought one or an identical looking antenna years ago and it performed very well. I was thinking of getting an antenna for my other car and was wondering if the Spectra has much advantage for 100 bucks other than performance on VHF low. Thanks.
Unless you are monitoring VHF low band frequencies right now, it's not worth spending the extra money in my book, However if there is any possibility of monitoring low band anytime in the future, get it now & save money in the long run. Hope this helps.
This is a late post, but I got the Spectra yesterday. I'm impressed w/ the performance on vhf-low. I haven't cut the lowband whip, either. Still trying to decide. I think I'll cut it more toward the center (40mhz). I generally listen between 39 and 46mhz on lowband.
I've tried quite a few scanner antennas over the years and this is by far the best on vhf-low. I've noticed some improvements w/ uhf and vhf-hi as well. Haven't tested 800, yet. Hope this helps.
