What's a good NMO mount GMRS antenna?

A quarter wave will work good in the city areas or for close range. If you go out into the rurals and especially if you have hills or mountains and your repeater is a good distance away, that NMO 72 will just about cut it. I am actually running a Tram 1181 that is basically the same as the NMO 72 and is good on the SWR across 2 meters, MURS, 70cm, and GMRS. I live in the rurals of Maine and from what I noticed, at least on the receive, that antenna just about does the job. A larger antenna that I know will work better is a Larsen NMO450C.  I used to work for a Medical transportation company in CT that covered most of the eastern side of the state. The Larsens did much better than a 1/4 wave. Its all about what distance you are looking for.
