ICOM AH-8000 Wide-Coverage Discone Antenna
http://www.grove-ent.com/icah8000.html

Continuous frequency coverage from 100MHz-3300MHz (3.3 GHz) is ideal for the new wide-frequency coverage receivers from ICOM, AOR, WiNRADiO, ALINCO and scanners, too!

Use it for transmitting up to 200 watts on ham*, government, military, aircraft and commercial bands as well!

Compact (36”) and lightweight (2.1 lbs.); 1”-2” mast mount hardware included

Rapid deployment with factory-cut elements--no adjustments required! Comes with 49’ of coax with type N connectors.

* Best impedance match for amateurs on 144, 430, 1200 and 2400 MHz band

It looks like a Diamond or similar Discone with 32" and 40" cone elements and 10 5/8" and 13 3/8" disk elements. How can this be any more of an antenna above 800MHz than a coat hanger or a beer can?
