Does anyone know of a device (diplexer/triplexer, etc) for a standard automobile 30 inch radio antenna that allows it to be used with a dual band (2m/UHF) transciever in addition to receiving AM/FM?

Try a glass mount 2m/440 antenna instead, looks like a cell phone antenna...not too tall ..pretty stealthy on my pick up truck.

Antenna Specialists "used" to make a dual bander as you describe, but no longer now that FM has been added to every vehicle. The previous suggestion was a good one, although I feel that permanently mounted antennas far out perform any type of mag mount or window mount.

I ditto the sti-co.com site.  They do these types of disguise antennas for undercover police cars.  They can even custom tune to your needs.  No the cheapest by far, but great quality.

Good luck!

Thanks for all the suggestions and especially for turning  me onto STI-CO.  I have a dual band antenna on order and  just installed a FT-90R (tnx to Mike for the suggestion on using the FT-90  http://mikemercury.home.att.net/hamradio.htm) in the ashtray of my Z06 Corvette.  For some unexplained reason I just couldn't bring myself to center-punch a 3/4 inch  hole for a NMO mount in the roof... hi.

Tnx Agn
