Already have the above mentioned Radio Shack handheld scanner and UHF antenna, but I'm not exactly sure what is needed to connect them. I'm trying to extend the scanner's range for picking up mil transmissions. Antenna will be mounted approx 75 feet from scanner.
Manual for the scanner says that I need an RG-8 cable. Could I adapt the end of a regular coax or is it necessary to get a full run of RG-8?
Also, my antenna's PN is MS815/1-01 (NSN 5985-00-217-0457) and I BELIEVE the jack on it is an "N-pin"? If so, Can I again just adapt from coax to N? (or RG-8 to N?) Pics loaded just in case, though I'm sure there are guys here who know exactly what I'm talking about.
Thanks in advance guys. Just looking for a way to hear our aircraft as they call in with their discrepancies.
