Yes - without a decent antenna/height and or real good cable you aint gonna hear anything.
If you were in California you would have a better chance of hearing something as it is used
much more with all of the high hills/mountains with many more repeaters and also quite a
bit of simplex linking as well as the ssb portion of the band but your scanners aint gonna
be able to demodulate that even if you could hear it. In my area as in most only an occaisional
repeater with most of them being low profile and a small amount of simplex linking. Look over
the local repeater coordinators website or the arrl repeater directory for california and it is
loaded with them.
NOTE: I think I have may have the only one in NJ that is not a paper repeater.....dan n2aym
