      Size isn't the only factor to be concerned with. 8db gain is your friend.

        Who makes a 8 dB VHF antenna?
        Generally speaking, 8' antenna is 6 dB. You typically don't get into 9 dB or better until your over 12 ft.

          there are 10db gain antennas available but they get directional at the higher gain. But your'e right, I meant to say 6 db 8'.
