I am the feed for Seneca County NY and i will be installing a new antenna on the exterior of my house approx 30 foot off the ground. currently im using a rubber ducky type stock antenna on a portable scanner in my concrete basement. Over all its not too bad really but i want to try to make it better. Ill be using a VHF 1/4 wave whip mounted with an L bracket and a cable direct to the scanner. What are other feed providers using? Does anyone else use something that may be better without costing me a ton of money? I really enjoy this scanner hobby and I look foward to hearing suggestions. Thanks.
