The MFJ-1724B. Looks similar to the antenna I use for around town and on trails with low trees, a Larsen NMO2/70SH. It's 1/4λ on 2m, coil a few inches up and center-loaded 3/4λ on 70cm, overall about 19" tall. I would have guessed that was the same. But if it's 1/4λ on 70cm, remember that's about 7" and so the coil is probably spaced about that far up.

"Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security. " --Albert Einstein
