You will have to flash that Vocon board as a VHF Model I,2 or 3 and after you are able to do that,the radio will need a full alignment to VHF since the vocon board was aligned for 800MHz.

The 8 inch is great if you have freqs from the low 136MHz to the upper 174MHz but if you have freqs in like the 150-160MHz range,the 6 inch band specific antenna would be more ideal since the antenna is specifically tuned to that range.
