I'm using a combination of digikey numbers ANT-418-CW-HWR-RPS-ND and
ACX12470ND with my FCDP.
The other thing that I've ordered (but not yet received) is a car
antenna with magnetic foot: Procom MU 4-MM/CEL4
(the MM indicates the magnetic foot, you can get any other mounting
option that Procom supports)
This is a 4dB gain antenna for the 414 - 430 MHz range.
They have other antennas for different ranges like 380-400 MHz (CEL5):
For the Procom antennas you typically need a FME cable plus a FME-SMA
