Default Best Sat antenna to buy

I understand some of the new antenna's have a higher gain.
What would be the best antenna to buy out on the market now?

The Dot Micro Antenna is the best antenna out there, AFAIK:

my real-world experience is that they are all about the same and that the real deciding factor is mounting location. a good location will yield good results, and a crappy lcoation will yield crappy results. I'd say go with the one that best fits your application (size, shape, etc...) and mount it in a good spot

my real-world experience is the dot micro far exceeds the others in quality. I've had a few different antennas and none pulled in signal as good as the dot micro.

Yes I just intalled my Sportster 4 with the dot antenna and I get full bars (Sat & Ter) on my reception here in Southern California. Awesome coverage.
