I just can't seem to find a good tri-band mobile antenna. Size and mounting are no object; it'll be on a Honda Element that already has HF/VHF/UHF ham antennas. I'm looking for something with gain on all bands, quality made, and as my vehicle already looks like Sputnik I really dont care if it further geeks it out. I live within 20 miles of a major city and along the interstate where the highway patrol uses a statewide 800mhz trunked system yet I find my performance lacking when I take my BCD396 mobile. Right now I'm using a no-name ham dual band 2m/440 mag mount but I'm ready to move up. I know the radio works; I pick up everything when I'm on my base J-pole at only 10 feet so I think I merely need a mobile upgrade. Any ideas?
