It's not that complicated. Basically, there's a couple of elements to your decision for an antenna. Are you; near/far and/or need wide/tight coverage. The farther you are, then the longer or bigger antenna antenna will be required to get a strong signal that will lock. And, are you in a location that requires a wider or narrower shot to the RP/Lookout
Distance and wider good choices are: CM4228 or Antennas Direct DB8
Closer the wider: CM3021 or Antennas Direct DB4
Longer & Tighter: CM3679 or CM3023 or Antennas Direct 91XG
Now, not to start any flamewars, sure there are many more antenna that could work, Especially some of the Rat shack models. They might a good place to start, as you can return them if they don't work. The models mentioned above are good brands and many of us here in Denver have and use them to great results. It seems like just about everybody that tried some of the store-recommended Terks, hated them and switched. (I raise my hand as I tried one back before I was on the forum. It didn't work until I switched to a Channelmaster, now it's great with no issues)
Bottom line: with low-power like we have, bigger is better!
