Thanks for the quick replies. Do you know the range of these antennas? What are your experiences with them?

I've tested to over 3 1/2 miles on the ground but it will go further in the air.

Make one. A friend and I did one for 900 mhz, a 12 element if I remember right. Over 4.5 miles on the ground, we ran out of road. Cost was about 20 bucks. The beam turned out to be about 45 degrees.

I just ordered this to try out. For $16 and free shipping, you can't go wrong. Still needs an adapter.

And these for the 2.4 crowd:

I've had several orders with them and no problems so far.
The 900Mhz antenna I ordered a couple of weeks ago, and it's been sitting there "waiting for supplier", but today it shipped so they probably have it in stock right now.
