Sources for antennas?

Greetings,

Where are folks sourcing their antennas? Also, does anyone have a source for the regular RTL-SDR antenna kit without the SDR? I don't know that I want just 4 of those, but the suction cup mount looks handy for mobile use. I can certainly scrounge stuff up but figured I'd see what others are using first.

Thanks!

I bought 3 of the RTL-SDR Blog Multipurpose Dipole Antenna Kit from the RTL-SDR Blog store on Amazon back in November (I already had one kit):

Hopefully that link works but you should just be able to search for it there...

I bought 4 of these, certainly not the best quality.

They do get the job done for mobile work.

I got these the second I knew which connectors were going to be on the Kerberos:

Once again not the best, (not great for lower freqs) but for the price it was cheaper than buying the cable alone (which I considered using for a custom antenna project).
Looks like the one in the post above...but it might not be since I technically didn't get what was in the picture.
The bases I got were way smaller than the one picture. More like a fridge magnet. Don't drive too fast lol.

in that case, it looks like the same antenna product offered on eBay (see earlier link)
