Great antenna w/3/8 inch threads  Time owned: more than 12 months
This antenna is very affordable but needs to use low profile type magnetic 3/8 inch base mount otherwise its out of resonate.

greeeeeeeeeeat  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
much better then a 1/4 wave on a mag mount but throw away factory set screws and buy longer ones with a real head.

Can't beat it for the price  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
The Hustler SF-220 is a simple 5/8 wave antenna for 222MHz. It has a 3/8" threaded base so all sorts of mounts will work with it. It's reasonably durably built (though not quite as tough as a more expensive Diamond or Comet antenna) and works about as you'd expect. I have had no problems with it. If you are already running a multiband antenna and just need to add 222 this is a good way to go. For $15-16 or so you can't beat it for the price.
