Is it the one in the middle of trunk? It is about 4 foot tall.
I think that is an Antenna Specialist Scanner antenna if I remember right.
The antenna on the trunk deck is a scanner antenna. LSO uses Antenna Specialists MON-R33 (Antenna Specialists MON-R33 Mobile Scanner Antenna) and MON-52 (Antenna Specialists MON-52). The antennas are very similar, but the MON-52 has 2 loads. The pics in the links above show the top cut off, but the length of the antenna is about the same above and below the load.
These are outstanding antennas particularly for 39-160mhz. They do ok on 450mhz, and not that great on 800mhz. I used to have a couple of these when I was in Nebraska because they were the best mobile scanner antenna I found for 39mhz. Antenna Specialists was bought by Maxrad/PCTEL and these antennas were discontinued.
Since I no longer need 39mhz in Arizona, this is my antenna of choice now:
PCTEL Maxrad BMAXSCAN1000 VHF,UHF 800 Scanner Ant. | TESSCO
It is much shorter than the MON antennas(since it does not cover low band). It is about equal performance to the MON on 150mhz, but much better on 450 and 800mhz.
Would you go with the BMAXSCAN1000 over Austin Spectra or know of a better antenna?
I listen to 150 for N-WIN and Lincoln's 800
I have the NMO mount on the side of my toolbox. Maybe a fender mount would have been better?

I have mine on the left front fender of my blazer, and I'd rather drill a hole in the roof and put it there, but I don't have the hole saw to do it,,, yet. Since it's so short, it is still somewhat feasible to pull the vehicle in a garage if that's your wishes. I swapped the stinger on mine for the top section of a RS mag-mount I had laying around and I'm more pleased with it. I get VHF 30 miles away but it's scratchy and barely readable. Otherwise I'd get basically nothing other than the 800. Since Lincoln has an N-WIN transmitter, you should get pretty decent results with it.
