Check out Prestige Communicationswebsite and yoou'll find heaps of info on UHF's. They are located in Perth, but will post anywhere in Australia for a small sum (around $5 - $10)

Prices here are really good compared to other places that you can find on the net. Give them a call. They are really helpful.

I am getting a TX3400 fitted on Friday by outbacker and they advised me to fit a GME AE409L ariel it is a 6DB to 9DB. It is a spring steel one that comes in two pieces so when you are around town you can use it as a 6DB then when you go bush you just screw the other piece on and it is a 9DB. I spoke to the guys at opposite lock and that is what they run on their vehicles and they have not broken one yet.

not the cheapest option, but for quality and versatility, the GME 4700 series is good value. However really only suitable for bullbar mounting.
I use a 4705 antenna and base. Into that I can also use the larger 4706 antenna, but it does tend to lay back a bit at 110km/h, but good for slow desert work. You can also use all the smaller antenna's in the 4700 range, and you can use the AE409L antenna on the 4705/6 base.
I use this configuration for when I go shooting I can replace the big whita antenna's with the 409 in 6db set up which creates less of a target for wayward bullets.

Hi. Dave I have a TX4000 With a AE409L, have had it about 8 years & it is still going strong Has done the Simpson , Googs & the Border fence etc I have found that the 6dB gives the best range unless it is very flat. It was explained to me that the 9 dB is like high beam ,long and narrow & the 6 dB spreads out more like low beam, also being thin you don't even notice it in the front. Cheers "D"
