A really solid ground plane antenna is the Scala GP-FM. Jeff Zimmer at Family Radio recently notified me that he has a bunch of them NIB he would like to move. They are cut to frequency with a shorted quarterwave stub in their design, but I have cut several of them from 2 to 6 MHz for transmit with no problems.  For receive they should do well.

 

I suspect Jeff would make someone a really good deal. Contact me off list for his contact info.

Dan,

I use an Arrow Antenna ground plane:

http://www.arrowantennas.com/sub/gp.html

Order the GP custom.  $ 70..

It has a UHF connector. I use a PL to type F adapter there, and then use standard RG-6 with F fittings.

I’m looking for a recommendation for a ground plane EAS receive antenna for FM and WX band. Must be rugged to withstand some ice falling in winter. FM/WX Signals in our area will be solid. 

 

Thank you!
