I am looking for a new receive only antenna for my car (NMO mount) that covers VHF high to 800 MHz. I've tried a couple different Laird Phantom antennas (490-512 MHz and 760-870 MHz models), but I haven't found one that receives that entire range reliably. The 490-512 MHz model works well with VHF high and UHF (obviously), but is nearly deaf on 700/800 MHz. The 760-870 MHz model works very well on 700/800 MHz (again, obviously), but is nearly deaf below that. Is there any Laird Phantom or similar antenna that will work well for 150-870 MHz? Thanks.
