Have a look at the Mobile One plug'n'Play CDMA antennas. When I replaced my original antenna because of damage to the spring base, I was amazed at the difference in signal strength and clarity it made.

Unfortunately the CDMA PnP antennas don't show on their web site yet.

Example: Despite living in the 'burbs, I live in a radio shadow. So, when parked in the driveway, I was getting a signal strength of one bar (out of four), at best. The PnP antenna gives me two bars minimum in the same position. Voice clarity is much better too.

The model No is CN822S. I think it's the only CDMA PnP model available at the moment.

I use a Laser HI-GAIN CDMA Antenna - UC9SF - 800 - 259
Item Code 509.

This was the Antenna recommended to me by an experienced retailer/installer and works well.

Now, having said that, I usually only use part of it. As mine is mounted on the roof (best possible location) I have a flexible stubby aerial of about 5" length. Loss of signal strength around the City is not noticable and it doesn't foul up in trees, underground car parks, etc. When I go bush, I replace the stubby aerial with the origional metre long jobbie if necessary, but attached to the same base.

Gives me excellent reception for both a CDMA or GSM phone, either of which fits in the same cradle.

I'm diagonally parked in a parallel Universe!
