stubby antenna

Has anyone found a short antenna that works as well or even close to the performance of the OE antenna? Have tried a couple of stubbies with disapointing results. would appreciate any suggestions.

Bill.

If I remember my basic radio stuff, a helically wound antenna gives you, in effect, a long antenna on a short staff, which would improve reception. I think you've put me on the right track.
