I have used the following for both the 396X and 396XT. It has been a great antenna for my car and I HIGHLY recommend it! I bought it from HRO and they got it to me quickly and safely. It includes the coax on the mount (I use the lip mount, not the mag, although I included the mag mount info below). It's a short antenna, yet has great gain. I live in St. Louis County (MO) and have little problem hearing everything I have programmed into my scanner, which is virtually most of City and County. Here's the info:
Larsen Tri-Band Antenna
NMO150 / 450 / 800
150-165 / 450-470 / 806-940 MHz
Gain: .............2.14 dBi ± 1dB
Height: ......................... 16.5"
This is a great anenna for scanner
operation. It is NOT tunable for amateur
Again, I've used this antenna for at least 4-5 years (have had two of them) and highly recommend it.
