Low gain outdoor dual pole antenna

Hello,

I am looking for a low gain dual pole outdoor antenna. I have a few net metals's that I would like re-purpose for a very short link (1/2 km) and my current 30db antenna's are too large. Does anyone know of a 5-10db antenna that I could use with these radios?

Thanks,
