For moderate pricing, I would select whichever Solid Signal model most suits your needs. Or you could consider MCM/Stellar Labs.

We still have over a hundred "A" stock DB2s left in stock. You'll have to call in to order as they're off the web store.

We also have over a hundred refurbished "B" stock DB2s on hand. They are on our website under the refurbished and clearance section.

They're pretty much the same, older-design 14-69 antennas. You probably won't notice any difference unless it breaks. They you'll find one has a lifetime warranty, and the other has a very short warranty and you own a broken antenna.

Of course, there is a new version from Antennas Direct, the DB2e, that has been upgraded to the new UHF channel band and performs very well. Solid Signal, on the other hand, chose to put their name on some white box Chinese generic UHF antenna

The DB2e would probably be the best performer, as it has a larger reflector and more fined tune elements for today's UHF channels. Although the other 2 should work basically fine as well. The Eagle Aspen version of the DB2 on Amazon is probably the cheapest, but if you want the best choose the DB2e.
