I got a mag mount from Byonics (http://www.byonics.com/mt-antennas) which worked great until I got it caught in the garage door Sad  $19+ shipping.

My current 2M/440 mag mount cost $30 from HRO and works well and is much sturdier.

You can also get a NMO or UHF mag mount base and attach whatever antenna you have to it. Some work better than others in a mag mount base, however.

Best advice? shop around on their site.

I do not blindly recommend MFJ products, but their dual-band mag mount MFJ-1724B was a good bargain the last time I saw them. Reinforced area where the cable entered the mag base, decent cabling, and a PL-to-BNC adapter is included. $25.

another idea if you are using a HT is the MFJ 310 which takes your rubber duck and mounts it on the gizmo you roll up in your window and has a 7 foot cable so your  rubber duck sits above the roof line. about 20 bucks for the gizmo and comes in either bnc or sma
