I have a new vehicle that I wasn't expecting to have to buy and I've really been having trouble deciding what I should do for an antenna. I know this much, it'll be on an NMO mount on the roof. Part of me just wants to go with a 19" whip, as my 70cm use is light to none. The Larsen NMO 2/70SH is a 19" made for dual band, with a nice little oops spring, with slightly degraded performance on 2m over a standard 1/4 wave, but I'm not sure I could measure it. The 19" antennas put me at 7' 3.1" The Diamond NR72BNMO is a shortened dual band at 13.8" putting my overall height under 7' which is nice, but a 2 meter antenna under 19", I don't know about that. I mean, if I'm going to break 7 feet with a 19" antenna, why not a full size dual bander like the Larsen NMO 2/70B at 33.5' for a total overall height just under 8' 6" I'm thinking that a trip around the places I go and get some average garage height measurements. If most would require an antenna removal anyway, why not just go with the larger antenna, but if I could get into them at 7' 3.1" that'd be the way to go. Everything is a compromise.
