In theory, the Antenna craft ST2 being a half-wave dipole should have some gain over an ST4 or Diamond discone. I currently have a discone (the old discontinued radio shack version). Does anyone have both antennas installed, and is the ST2 a good performer? My discone does quite well on VHF and UHF but doesnt fare real well in the 800 range, and is pretty useless in the 27-45 Mhz range. Only picks up in the 50-54 6 meter ham band (which is what I have the whip tuned to). Was looking to replace or supplement with an ST2 if it has better low band and 800 Mhz coverage, while maintaining the good Air band (civil and military) reception of the discone.
