Default Antenna Help

So...I got my 2 meter radio...just passed my tech test and will be ready to operate my radio very soon. My question...I need an antenna, and coax cable. Where in Denver do I go to look, and buy the products I need? I would like to get the smallest/ shortest antenna possible to mount on my 40.


Suggestions?

Anything used for sale in the club?

Advice?

Help?

Here's the one I use. With the mount, it's only about 14-15 inches tall.

Comet SBB-1 is another good, short, flexible antenna with very good range. It's my offroad antenna. I use a Comet SBB-7 onroad. I use these with a Diamond K400 mount. Use this style mount for both ham and CB antennas and they've held up very well.
