I get antennas from Talley Communications great service
you can get the NMO mounts with a magnetic base
what I did was maxe an inverted U using 3 pieces of aluminum angle irons 1/8 inch thick. I screwed one section to the left and righ side of the truck and pan he other section between the uprights. In or 7the section that is parallel to the truck, I drilled the 3/4 holes amd mounted the NMO antennas.... If you get antennas with a spring or that flex a litle it makes it easier to go through drivethrough or into garages or park under canopies.
I have 6 antennas along the back of the truck. Different antennas for different wavelengths. I also have several radios
most of the services I monitor are on 460mhz or 750/850mhz the 460 mhz antenna works for both
150 300 450 600 750 900 for these he same antenna works well
technology is nice when it works! --- Engineers SOLVE PROBLEMS....Unix: Solaris AIX HP-HPUx Linux +++;analon/FREGGS farms too 602-909-5280

The Austin Spectra is good.
I used it with a triplexer and a several mobiles without issue. The lownband radiator has to be trimmed. In my case I ended to use 46.18/22 often so I trimmed it for 46.2. The top whip was only 5" and the overall antenna we about 36". Works well but it's not very flexible.
