Aerial, for mobile I would heartily recomend the Sirio HP4000. Will give 1.5 MHz bandwidth.
Look around Mid-band on Wednesday nights 7pm to 9pm for the mid week nets on ssb

sirio gain master 5/8 wave, or imax 2000 seem to be the top 2 at the min, I have the sirio gain master 5/8 wave brilliant antenna and I have it on a 6ft carnked pole on the chimney BUT it is VERY whippy but does the job for me.
