Home Depot has the Tram 1480 dual band base antenna on sale for $70! I have the 3/4 WL version of this same antenna here in the shack, and I love it. It has given me three plus solid years of service in all weather.
If you are looking for a budget friendly base antenna, look no further. This is a great deal. These sell for almost $100 on Amazon, and the comparable Diamond or Comet antennas start at $100 and go up from there.
Please reach out with any questions.
