On that subject, can anybody recommend a good portable antenna for use 
with the FCDP?

At home, I can pick out some (presumably) TETRA signals (in NRW, DE) by 
hooking up to a DVB-T booster antenna I have and scanning around 420MHz.

As mentioned, portable laptop antennae like those for WLAN and DVB 
aren't ideal.  So I'd be interested in finding something to use while 
out-and-about with the FCDP, which could be good for picking up the most 
common TETRA bands.
