So our family found ourselves in Denver for an unexpected trip today so I stopped in at HRO to pick up some antenna supplies. Got an NMO mount that I soldered up tonight. While looking at small 1/4 wave antnennas the guy said a 2m 1/4 wave would work on 70cm but not perfect. Looks like this antenna would be 3/4 wave on 70cm. For my uses I think that would be aceptable so...I think I will order up that Flexi-whip

Just need to quickly fab up a mounting bracket for the new NMO and try it out. It may be a couple of days before I can get to it.
