Well, I actually backed that part out of my comment, because I felt I was getting off topic.
However, since you brought it up, I do not feel it is a junk antenna, nor is the A99. I have had many people tell me that they bleed all over the place, and that they are bad for TVI. Never experienced that myself, because I have ran an A99 for nearly 8 years with no complaints from the neighbors. With a 4 element Yagi in the air, I can assure you they would know who's door to come knocking on if I was interfering. And that was running as much as 500 watts through it, too. I ran a Imax 2000 at my Dad's place with a two pill with no complaints, either
What I did recommend was the same thing I'd recommend with ANY ground plane antenna (or beam for that matter), fiberglass, aluminum, or whatever combination someone can come up with. Good basics are good basics, and we should all follow them. Sounds like socal1leg is on the right track.
I'm in the hi-fidelity first class traveling set
And I think I need a Lear Jet. (Maybe two)
