I don't think they stock the 6'+ whips... I did see a 3' but nothing longer.

Those are what serious HAM radio operators run. I am happy with my little 1/8 wave antenna for 2 meter personally. Makes the truck look like an LGM from Toy Story.. hehe

You can get them off their website, or sometimes they have 102" whip in the back, just ask them.

The one pictured above looks like a Predator 10K antenna, while it does look ugly. It is one of the best antenna's on the market, unless your running some serious power the 102" is just as good.

Make sure you get the 6" spring from Radio shack also, which will make it 108".
Then it will be a full 1/4 wave antenna
