fremont Posted December 1, 2020 Report Share Posted December 1, 2020 I'm brand new to ham and was looking at mobile VHF antennas. I have a fender mount plate (NMO) and have really liked my Laird phantom "ghost" low (3.5") antenna in GMRS applications. They make one in VHF at various frequency ranges. My guess is that their 142-160 model would work fine for me, as I'm mainly interested in 146.520 for things like traveling, wilderness protocol, etc. and for the mid-150's to scan public safety, etc. I've debated getting that vs. an antenna that goes 136-174, but, with SWR tuning, do you end up losing much of that range anyhow?
