They are supposed to be REALLY good. See here: http://www.transmission1.co.uk/2011/06/ ... io-review/

As for which antenna, depends on how much money you want to spend.

5/8 Wave silver rod. £33

Thunderpole 5. £68

Sirio 827. £120

Sirio Gainmaster. £130

Even the humble 5/8 wave 'silver rod' will give you reasonable results. The extra money is really going on build quality rather than massive range or capability gains.
