Default RadioShack 800MHz antenna mod

With some "O"-rings and some heat shrink tubing, I mated the RadioShack 800MHz antenna with the supplied Uniden BNC to SMA adapter. Looks better and actually adds some stability to the antenna configuration and weatherproofs the connector at the antenna and the radio.
