I have thrown the height problem out I am willing to just unscrew the coil. I have found somewhere that I can pick up a Used Wilson 500 for $30 and I would have to buy the whip. Is that a good deal or should i look at a Wilson 1000? I am thinking of upgrading in the future to a Galaxy dx959 for SSB from my Uniden pc78 elite. Any thoughts or suggestions would be a great help!
