I have a radio shack antenna and want to get something that picks up more. Who
makes the best one and where can I get one.

Read the archive of this group...

...or just take my word for it (and many others will agree, I am sure) and
shop for an Antenna Specialists or Larsen.

I have an excellent setup that works great for me & it is under $50.00.
There is a commercial dualband antenna available from a guy in Louisiana
that retails for ~$22.00. It is cut for 150/450 commercial bands & has 3dB
gain on VHF & 6dB on UHF. He also sells 5" magnet mounts for ~$20.00
with 17' of coax & a soldered PL-259 connector. These antennas are
excellent! The  quality & performance are superb!  He is also on eBay &
I will include his master listing URL so you can see the items I am talking
about:

His name is Jerry AD5AQ

Palmetto Antennas
1107 Gains Ave
Ruston, La 71270

His eBay Master Listing:

You will not be disappointed. He sells an excellent antenna line. Tell him
Rafman sent you! Enjoy!
