    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet.

They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    Watson 881 vs 889

    Hi, Im looking to get a new antenna that will imrpove my reception for my 396XT on all bands. Ive been looking at the watson 889 and 881. I like the 889 because it is telescopic however it is something I can live without. Are these two antennas compairable? Which is better? Thanks!
