Question About Base Antenna From "The Source" (Radio Shack)

Howdy folks,

I'm currently looking at a base antenna for my BCT8, and the only one that I could find at Radio Shack (The Source) was something with the stock number "A24427". There is NO other information on whether it's the Discone antenna that their U.S. counterpart sells, or whether it's a clone of the ST2 from AntennaCraft.
