ok, if you based your opinion on the drawing you saw at aoruk.com thenQuote:> looks like a piece of poo.

now, if you are looking to maybe become a ham later or you solely listen to
then i'd go for a 5/8 on 5/8 dualband vertical.
they come in varying sizes [the bigger the better of course!]
but will always out perform a discone.
now ok, a royal will allow you to tx as well where the dualband does
so its upto you
