AND, of course, the higher the antenna, AND the better the coax, the more likely it will work for you. LMR 200, or even 400, if you can handle it.The SDS-200 will improve performance, but not reception. Only an antenna will do that. I had to switch to a Yagi to clean up reception on an SDS-200 and a BCD536HP. Neither did very well with the discone.
