These are the SWR scans for the Comet CA-2x4MB dual band antenna I had on my old Jeep. I have a photo posted of the antenna on the Jeep. The antenna is a non-ground plane type so the luggage rack mount works just fine.

So far this is the ONLY dual band antenna I've tested that works with an SWR under 2:1 on both the Ham VHF / UHF bands and the MURS / GMRS bands too. The scans were done using a RigExpert AA-1000 antenna analyzer. I wished Comet still made this model but it's been long discontinued.

The one on the Jeep is still in decent shape other than the fold over spring is too weak to hold it in place, fixed with tape to keep it in the socket and not flip over while driving. It's been like this for years and no further issues. I do take the antenna off the Jeep once in a while to clean it.

I do have a spare, I purchased two at the time. The spare has never seen the outside, so no visible wear. Looks like new. If the one I have on the vehicle gets wrecked I have a spare.
