Depends on frequency. A dual band antenna will be most sensitive on 145Mhz and 433Mhz, but the performance will fall off either side of these frequencies.Gemini4 wrote:To be honest, i just hope my white stick holds up in these gales on another note i've been listening and broadcasting on my white stick and have to admit

A discone will be better at military air frequencies (250 - 400Mhz) than a white stick would be. But conversely, a white stick will work better at 2m and 70cm.
