Ok, fellow hams I surrender. I need some help. I recently switched cars from a dad van with tons of roof space to an 08 Mini Cooper hatchback. I have a Yaesu-FT-100D installed and my old dual band antenna isn't cutting the mustard. I have a Tram mag mount that is a shorter one at like 19" or so. I have the panorama roof on my Mini so most of the roof is sunroof. I am barely able to hit my local repeaters now and I suspect the lack of metal roof is hurting me. So I began researching options. I know Tram was junk anyway but it worked fine on my last car. My mini is a hatchback so my plan is to buy two lip mounts and put a vhf/uhf on one side of the hatch and an HF on the other so I can fully utilize the radio. I have studied reviews and tons of options for the vhf/uhf mobile and I am dizzy so I fear I have paralysis by analysis now. I am seeking help to identify a decent antenna that would be in the $40-60 range that will get me some reasonable dbi improvement and will work with a lip mount. Thoughts?
