Hi all....Does anybody know where i might find a reasonably priced 1/4 wave dual band antenna with a 3/8-24 stud? I've seen one manufactured by Workman, but i don't know if just the antenna only is available. I already have a mount for it. Thanks in advance.

You can make your own pretty easy. Remember, a quarter-wave whip (about 19.5 inches long) on the 2-meter band works very well as a 3/4th wave on the 70 cm band.

Not sure if you're still looking, but if you are:
I've had good luck with their products before.

I've used a couple Anttron antennas and magmount on several vehicles continuously for over 20 years, and I just can't break them or wear them out.
I usually pick them up from dealers at Virginia hamfests. Note that there is possible confusion over spelling of the name with other antenna manufacturers. My understanding is that Anttron is a small family business who caters to independent ham dealers.

Thanks...I wound up picking up a Workman DB-1, which ran me a whopping ten bucks. It's on a mag mount, and i keep it in the truck for use with my FT-60 HT.
