If you have the resources, you can get away with putting a magnet-mount antenna (like the RS 20-032) on a window A/C unit or other large metal surface and will probably pick up the 150 channels again. You have the 800mHz antenna, and I'll bet you probably listen to the scanner indoors, right? The walls will attenuate the signal somewhat, and since you've moved, you probably moved further away from the tower that broadcasts the 150 mHz channels you're wanting to listen to. Those 800 mHz antennas will work somewhat for listen to transmissions in the 150 mHz range, but it won't be as good as it can be. There's a guy in my town that has the Diamond antenna mentioned above on a Pro-106 and he's catching a P25 signal 30 miles away no problem.
