You could remove the longer VHF-Low elements, but the antenna might not perform as well as an antenna designed for VHF-High because you are altering the original design of the antenna.

A suitable VHF-High antenna might be the Stellar Labs 30-2476.

You could shorten the boom, but you would have to find a new attachment point for the mast at the center of gravity.

What VHF-High channel are you trying to receive, WESH?
