Lot of good suggestions here. Personally, I use a cellular telephone
mag-mount antenna that was popular with the old analog bag phones.
About 15" long with an open coil section in the middle. It works great
for 800 MHz systems, and seems to work quite well on VHF and ok on UHF.
These can be found for little or nothing nowadays since today's phones
don't have external antenna connections anymore.
