In which case I would consider the Diamond X-200 or X-50.

Stick up the biggest ham 2m/70cm dualband 5/8 on 5/8 co-linear vertical you can.

Always far out performs even the diamond

Check out a discone. I suggest the Diamond D-130J or NJ depending on the connector. Avoid the MFJ brand if mounted outside.
