Place to buy antennas for 1.2ghz?

Anyone know of a place to buy replacement whip antennas specifically for 1.2ghz?

My daughter "helped" my FPV summit truck over a log and snapped off my 2.5dbi stock antenna from my 800mW 1.2ghz tx. Shes so sweet.

I might make a goof proof patch antenna for the base station, but what about whip antennas for the tx? I know it wont be a great match, but I have a few 3.5dbi 900mhz antennas sitting around. We are a few hundred mhz out to lunch, but might get me through till I find a suitable replacement.

I am planning to sit down and read through the make your own antenna thread, and build a whip. But no home creation is as robust as a manufactured version.

There are smaller vendors that include such products for our hobby, like and, but for selection you can go straight to a communications site like L-COM:

More choices than you can shake a whip at. Oddly, they don't have much for 1.2 GHz though!

nice, thanks guys! Most of the ebay ones are mis-represented (good for 900mhz-2.4ghz applications?)

I've been doing my research. I am going to build a few antennas from IBCrazy's thread specifically for 1280mhz. Doing calculations I realize that "standard" antennas are really not tuned for specific channels. Building my own, I can now get more efficiency out of my TX/RX's.

I might buy one of those Yagi's though - thats just too cool.
