Another nod for the Larsen NMO-2/70. I use one as a base antenna as well. Works great all accros VHF/UHF and even on 800MHz. If I could afford it I would get another for my car.N1BHH said:Since your out in the great wide open a good antenna would be the Larasen NMO-2/70 as it gives you a bit more range than the NMO-150/450/800. I don't know what there is off hand for radio spectrum usage, but it does work, not just in the ham bands, but all over the spectrum. I use one at home on a mag mount on my air conditioner for scanning and does me good. This is a fine mobile antenna, and the ones shown above work nicely for your home station, too. Look it up on HRO or any other ham store and try it out.
I doubt that radio shack would have them the mobile that is the base should be and instock item, the mobile you would have to Order online. Good Luck Hosertrip236 said:My only option is fairbanks radio shack,do they carry them?
