I think you'll find that a high gain omni on a ground vehicle will give mixed results.
Any time the vehicle pitches or rolls, you'll lose the signal. I think you'd
have better results with a light weight low gain omni, placed as high as possible (on a mast).
Getting your Rx antenna even higher (on a pole) will help with the inevitable loss of signal
due to being so deep into the Fresnel zone (multi-pathing). I've lost signal at 100ft with an 600mW Tx
due to that.
