The Comtelco is 19 inches tall. Although I have not used the Antenex, I would suspect that there is little or no difference in performance between the two. The Comtelco works quite well for it's size. But both are a no-gain compromise for multi-band performance. If you listen mainly to one band, you'd probably be better off getting an antenna cut for that specific band and take what you can get out of it on the other bands. For instance, I use a 3db 800mhz antenna on my car because about ninety-five percent of what I listen to is 800mhz. It works three times as well as the Comtelco multi-bander. And, even that short antenna does decent on UHF and Hi Band in an urban environment.
