      ScannerMaster carries the Austin Sprectra. It's expensive at 99.00 but
      I've been very impressed.

      Unfortunately the antenna I have on vehicle in addition to the Austin
      Spectra, which is knocking it out of the park on all bands, is not made any
      more. It is the Antenna Specialist MON 52 Lo band, High, UHF, 800 Mhz



      I'm also planning to try this one in the near future

      I've used the Larsen 150/450 NMO antennas for years and they are some of
      the best performing antennas. I've never tried the tri-band antenna, but
      it very likely is exactly what you are looking for.

      It appears that the Spectra is twice as long as the Larsen, so it could be worth a try if the OP can handle that much length. Could be a bit of a problem in

          The Larsen NMO150/450/800 covers VHF, UHF and 800 MHz and you can buy it
          with a mag mount or for installation.

          It will do a good job on your vehicle and also works well indoors if you
          put it on a metal base such as a cookie sheet, pizza pan, file cabinet,
          tc.

            I have my Spectra mounted on an NMO trunk mount on the front passenger s side of the hood/cowl on my SUV. Works well. The longest I could put on a roof mount

              I have my Spectra mounted on an NMO trunk mount on the front passenger's
              side of the hood/cowl on my SUV. Works well.


              The longest I could put on a roof mount would be a 19" whip and even at
              that, I would want it spring loaded. I also like the Antennex 150/450/800
              center loaded antenna, unfortunately - no spring.
