The perfect antenna?

I'm looking for the perfect antenna for my Radioshack Pro-2096 that I have mounted in my truck. While I mostly listen to 800mhz digitally trunked systems, I also listen to the convetional systems especially the USCG and boating channels. My question to you guys is what is the best all around antenna to get. I just got a radio shack 800mhz antenna for my PRO-96 and love the ability to hear distant 800mhz systems. Now I want the same effect for my mobile unit.

My requirments for this antenna is that it be short, glass mounted preferred, but I'll settle with a suction unit.
