You should hit one of the Truck stops between Tucson/ Phoenix. I usually find the best deals on antennas there.

Here's what I use, It's the best one I have had. (Tried Wilson, Fire stick, etc). Be sure to put a spring on it.

If I was to order a Hustler SCB-S and mounted it myself, then I'd need to have someone tune it?

You can always tune it yourself by either purchasing a SWR unit or borrowing from a fellow non-member.

link for SWR meter:

Should I get the short, or the tall version?

I'm thinking short, but maybe taller will work better?

The "Hustler" I have has a bulb with most of the antenna wrapped in it, and a radiating 'element' that is adjusted with a screw, up or down.

Tuning is no too hard, you have to have an SWR meter I have one here in Tucson. (IGGBrewer, I found it).

Happy to do it for you when you are down here.

www.rightchannelradios...structions

This drives me mad trying to remember so I put it on a sticky label on the back of my SWR meter:

    If the SWR on channel 40 is higher than that on channel 1, your antenna is too long.
    If the SWR on channel 1 is higher than that on channel 40, your antenna is too short.
