Looking at all the options I think the SX80 vertical may be the best compromise. There seems to be many vendors around but knowing which one to opt for is my next decision. Stacks of them on ebay, but I am cynical of that site these days.

I have one of them john but there not up to much, you may be better of just putting up a pro-ham mobile antenna now they do work but limited to one band.

You'd be better off with a fibreglass pole, a piece of wire and a 9:1 unun. Short multiband verticals that claim to not need any radials are normally poor performers.
