I'm looking in to getting a mobile magmount type antenna for the Federal 160-175mhz band and was wondering what are the best suggestions? I'm not in to the drill mount antennas. Also, more DB gain would be nice such as 2db or 3db at the most maybe something higher?

PCTel, Sinclabs, Maxrad, Larsen all make wide band 1/2 wave antennas that will give you the bandwidth you need. You will not get the bandwidth from a 5/8 wave, but if it is RX only cut a 5/8 wave for 167.5MHz and you should be fine.
