Hello all

I have a pro-106 and i am looking for a small (short) rubber duckie antenna that would work well on 800mhz and 140-150mhz. Need something small that is easy to conceal, any ideas?

I did find an 800 MHz antenna from Radio Shack.

I highly recommend the Comet CH 32. I bought one of these back in the mid 90's and have had it on many different scanners. Its 800 reception is very good. It is also good around the 150's and 450's.

There is a commercial stubby which performs like a half wave that I use on my vx-6r,
Great on vhf/uhf and hears reasonably on 900 mhz. Also only 3" long, all black including sma connector.
I think it's available with a bnc also.
